Gerlich interviews with UNM - Ricky Treon, Amarillo Globe News
West Texas A&M head women's basketball coach Krista Gerlich has interviewed for the same position at the University of New Mexico, WT athletic director Michael McBroom said Tuesday.
McBroom said officials from New Mexico contacted him late last week for permission to speak with Gerlich. He granted the request, and Gerlich interviewed in Albuquerque over the weekend.
"She is a finalist for the job - as she should be," McBroom said. "She is, in my mind, one of the best basketball coaches in the country.
"The opportunity to interview is well deserved."
Gerlich didn't return several messages left on her mobile phone Tuesday.
