AUSTIN, Texas -- University of Texas at Austin regents have scheduled a special meeting to authorize hiring a women s basketball coach.

The meeting on Monday will come less than a week after North Texas coach Karen Aston visited Austin to discuss the opening with Texas officials, including President William Powers. She is believed to be the only coach brought in for an interview.

Former Texas coach Gail Goestenkors resigned March 20 after the Longhorns lost in the first round of the NCAA tournament for the fourth straight season.

Aston was a Texas assistant from 1998 to 2006 under Hall of Fame coach Jody Conradt, and one of the program s top recruiters. She spent four seasons as the head coach at Charlotte before taking the North Texas job last year.
