Only their fourth, as far as we know, choice..... $24 million lessens the hit on your ego.

Helps that Cincy offered him a pay cut as a bonus for doing well at Cincy. He will make double at UCLA

"Doing well" is definitely relative .... Cronin made the Big Dance 9 years in a row at UC but only got past the first weekend once, and that was 8 years ago. The guy UCLA just kicked to the curb made the Sweet 16 3 out of the 5 full years he was there. I'm guessing the UCLA fans aren't going giddy with this hire ....

Really sucks that our good conference coaches continue to get poached by the P5......i get it but still blows.

Not really a P5 in college basketball. More like a P7, adding the American and Big East to the football ones ....... but I guess you could say that football P5 are the $5 in basketball.

I don't know. It is being reported that Frank Martin is a leading contender to replace Mick. They say he's unhappy at South Carolina and he makes less than Cronin was getting paid.

Mick may have trouble in Westwood.

Martin pulled himself out of the running. Craig Smith, Utah State, did too.
