Coach Mike Cross

Former High School Head Coach


With years of coaching experience, including coaching at Otterbein University and two stints in Indiana's MIC conference, Coach Cross has seen a thing or two when it comes to the organization of a football program. Pairing his coaching experience with Bachelors’ degrees in Sports Management & Business, as well as a Master's in Business Administration, he is a coach who understands the importance of the delicate balance between football knowledge, team culture, and program organization.

In addition to his hands-on coaching experience, Coach Cross has spent countless hours of professional development devoted to football principles, techniques, and schematics. Having attended The Ohio State University's coach's clinic the past seven years, as well as a myriad of lectures and programs at the Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Cincinnati Glazier Clinics, Coach Cross brings a unique perspective of passion and knowledge of the sport to his coaching method.

Coach Cross spent three years as an assistant coach at Circleville High School (OH) where he worked with the offensive line and inside linebackers. He followed that up with a Graduate Assistancy at Otterbein University (OH) coaching O-line. When his wife of four years took a job opportunity back Indiana, he was tasked as an Assistant Coach for Coach Graves at Pike High School (IN). After coaching at Pike, Coach Cross made the transition to being a Freshman Offensive Coordinator for John Rodenberg’s Lawrence Central program (IN). In the 2021 season, Coach Cross was the Offensive Coordinator at Crispus Attucks High School (IN). Most recently Coach Cross was the Head Football Coach at Covington High School (IN).

Currently Coach Cross is working on the development of a start up football program in SW Hancock County.
