Cincy, Cronin agree to new contract

  Mick Cronin has brought Cincinnati to the past four NCAA tournaments.

CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati has signed head coach Mick Cronin to a new seven-year contract.

The school says Cronin has agreed to a contract through the 2020-21 season. The school says it replaces an earlier extension for Cronin, who will be in his ninth season with the Bearcats.

Other terms weren't announced Monday.

Cronin is 162-107 in eight seasons at Cincinnati. He took over the program in 2006-2007, following interim coach Andy Kennedy. A former Murray State coach and Cincinnati native, he has led the Bearcats to the NCAA tournament the past four seasons.

He was the American Athletic Conference's inaugural coach of the year. His team went 27-7 last season, losing to Harvard in the NCAA tournament.
