Cincinnati's Cronin cleared to resume coaching

CINCINNATI -- Bearcats coach Mick Cronin has been cleared to resume coaching after missing most of the season because of a problem with a blood vessel in the back of his head.

The 43-year-old wasn't permitted to coach games or practices after the problem was detected in December. Assistant Larry Davis took over and led the Bearcats to the NCAA tournament, where they lost to Kentucky in their second game.

Cronin had more tests recently that found the problem had been resolved. The problem — known as arterial dissection — was treated with medication.
