It has been made official that men’s basketball head coach Mick Cronin and football head coach Tommy Tuberville have both received two year contract extensions. Cronin’s extension locks him in until the end of the 2022-23 season and Tuberville’s extension locks him in until the end of the 2019 season.
For Cronin who has been here for a decade and led the Bearcats a record of 207-129 and made six straight NCAA Tournaments we expected some type of extension because he flirted with UNLV for a week so we knew he didn’t stay just out of good faith. Details haven’t been made about the contract, but like I said when he stayed I’m pretty sure the money is the same, but it addresses the fixture of the Fifth Third Arena and his private jet for recruiting. Which is understandable love, hate or indifferent Cronin has brought stability to the Bearcats basketball programs with conference instability looping during the last few years. We all want to get into a better conference (looks at Big 12 or ACC), but UC is currently stuck in the AAC so the recruiting job he has done as of late has been great looking at the circumstances.
Once BCI gets more details of the extensions we will inform our readers.
