NM Highlands promotes Snow to AD, Dominguez to head coach

LAS VEGAS, N.M. — New Mexico Highlands has promoted Craig Snow to full-time athletic director and Mike Dominguez to men’s basketball coach.

Snow has served as NMHU’s interim director of athletics since September 2017 while also serving as the Cowboys’ men’s basketball coach — just finishing his fifth season and leading the team to a program-record 22 wins, the Cowboys’ first Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference tournament title and second NCAA Tournament appearance.

“I want to thank our administration — specifically President Sam Minner —the current and former players and coaches and the community of Las Vegas for all the support they have shown me and my family,” Snow said in a statement provided by the school. “I look forward to expanding my role at NMHU as athletic director and I hope to impact our department in the same way we impacted the men’s basketball program.”

Prior to Snow’s arrival at NMHU, he was a three-year assistant coach at New Mexico under head coach Craig Neal through the 2013-14 season. A former collegiate player at Evansville, Snow also was head boys basketball coach (2004-11) and athletic director (2005-11) at Bosque School.

n Dominguez served as associate head coach the past two seasons. He attended high school at Española Valley and Capital and was a three-time all-state selection. Capital won the Class 4A title in 2004.

Dominguez went on to play at Florida International and then at Colorado Mesa, where in 2009-10 he was named RMAC Player of the Year.

” Growing up in New Mexico and having my first head coaching job be in New Mexico means the world to me,” Dominguez said. “We will continue to recruit the finest student-athletes within the state and across the country and play an exciting brand of basketball.”
