MC's Craig Records Coaching Milestone, Jones Nears 500 MC Wins

By Forrest Allen
Midland College Athletic Director


Congratulations to Midland College men's basketball coach Chris Craig who picked up his 100th collegiate coaching victory in Monday's 76-71 victory versus Clarendon College. Craig, in his second year at MC, has amassed a record of 100-47 (.680) in his nearly five years as a head coach, including three years at the College of Eastern Utah (69-32) and one and a half seasons with Midland College (31-15).

Lady Chaparral basketball head coach Ron Jones is quickly approaching 500 wins at Midland College. Jones is currently at 497-124 (.801) in just over 18 seasons at MC. Coach Jones eclipsed the 500 career win plateau (collegiate career) last season. That total includes two seasons at Western Texas College (34-27). Jones' all time collegiate victory total stands at 532-151 (.779) in just over 20 seasons.
