"When I left I wanted to make sure the University was educated and they knew some of the things they needed to do for the basketball program to try to help it and move itself forward. I've thrived in my role of being an athletic administrator. So, when I look back on my time here, it was a very enjoyable time. I enjoyed coaching here. I enjoyed the University. It attracted me at one time to come here. Those same elements within the University exist," Gross said.
Gross is one of three finalists.
Rick Goeb had his interview on Tuesday and Kim Blum will have hers on Monday.
Blum is the current interim director of athletics at UW-La Crosse.
