Cincinnati's Cronin gets new seven-year deal

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The University of Cincinnati and head men's basketball coach Mick Cronin have agreed to a new contract through the 2020-21 season.

The new seven-year deal replaces the extension Cronin signed a year ago.

Cronin, entering his ninth year at Cincinnati, was named the 2014 American Athletic Conference Coach of the Year after guiding the Bearcats to a 27-7 overall record during 2013-14.

"Eight years ago, I was named head coach at the University of Cincinnati and at that press conference I said among other things I wanted to make UC basketball an elite program, a class program, mentioned with the likes of the best college basketball programs in the country," Cronin said.

He has done just that, winning at least 26 games in three of the past four seasons and leading the program to four consecutive NCAA Tournaments.

"Today, I hope that my commitment to that statement is much more in focus and understood," Cronin added. "While it is a great honor to be the coach at my alma mater, my goals for our program are still very much the same."

The Bearcats finished 15-3 in conference play this past season and tied for a share of the American regular-season title. Cronin's team earned a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament before getting upset by Harvard in the second round.
