CINCINNATI (AP) - Coach Mick Cronin has agreed to a contract extension with Cincinnati that would add at least one year to his deal and run through the 2017-18 season.
Cronin, who enters his eighth season, could have another one or two years added to the deal if the Bearcats make the NCAA tournament in either of the next two seasons. The reworked deal gives him more compensation for his team's academic accomplishments and NCAA tournament appearances.
The Bearcats have made the NCAA tournament each of the last three seasons under Cronin, who has revived the program after coach Bob Huggins' ouster following a power struggle with a former school president.
Contract details won't be released until it's approved by the board of trustees in June.
