Former Navarro coach Estelle introduced at A&M-Kingsville

Corsicana — Texas A&M-Kingsville held a dual press conference Monday to introduce two new basketball coaches, including former Navarro College coach Johnny Estelle.

Estelle, a former Javelinas player, takes over the men’s program, while Wade Scott was introduced as the women’s coach. Estelle, who left Navarro last July, spent last season as an assistant at the University of Houston.

Estelle was at Navarro the previous 13 years, the first eight as an assistant under legendary coach Lewis Orr. In five years as a head coach, he went 126-48, won three regional titles and a conference championship.

The Javelinas were 8-18 last year, and 3-11 in Lone Star Conference play.

At Houston, Estelle coached under James Dickey, who resigned at the end of the season, and later joined the staff as an assistant at Oklahoma State. The Cougars were 17-16 last season.
