KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Cincinnati basketball coach Mick Cronin is leaving the program to take the job at UCLA. The school had never before fired a coach during the season.

The 47-year-old has had two gigs, his first with Murray State before moving to Cincinnati. "To be able to join such a world-class institution is truly a privilege, and I can't wait to get started in Westwood".

Sources: UCLA has officially hired Cincinnati's Mick Cronin as its next head basketball coach.

UCLA reportedly wanted to make TCU's Jamie Dixon its new head man, but it didn't want to pay an $8 million buyout to make him it happen.

Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers, a UCLA letterman who assisted with the search, said that it was important the school found a coach who "really wants to be here".

"Mick Cronin is a fierce competitor, and I'm excited to welcome him to Westwood", UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said.

Guerrero will lead an introductory press conference for Cronin at 11 a.m. on Wednesday in Pauley Pavilion.

Cronin has become one of just six coaches in the nation to have led his program to the NCAA Tournament the last nine seasons.

Health issues forced Cronin to miss most of the 2014-15 season as he recovered from an aneurysm that was discovered after he complained of lingering headaches.

The Bruins' roster will be depleted by the early departures of sophomores Kris Wilkes and Jaylen Hands, who recently announced their plans to hire agents and declare for the National Basketball Association draft. Among the incoming recruits are Jaime Jaquez and Jake Kyman.

He is taking over a program that went 17-16 in 2018-19.

This season, he guided the Bearcats to a 28-7 record.

His teams are strong defensively and consistent winners; the Bearcats have made nine consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament during his 13 seasons at Cincinnati, advancing to a regional semifinal in 2012. UCLA lost to Kentucky in the regional semifinal in 2017. The Bruins on Tuesday tapped Cincinnati's Mick Cronin to replace interim coach Murry Bartow, ending a saga that displayed how far the once-heralded program has fallen in recent years.
