Cincy trying to find something or make something up to avoid paying Brannen when they fire him.

Cincinnati basketball has been nuked back to the old Metro Conference days. The school needs to reallocate those resources into football, become a perennial juggernaut, and position themselves for P5 expansion whenever it happens.

Cronin was a complete prick and he never got suspended; but he won. I doubt Brannen is worse than him.

Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't they happy to rid themselves of Cronin?

? The Metro was a fine basketball conference and considered a major while it lasted. And 2021 was the first time Cincinnati has missed the tournament in 10 years. 5 of 9 they made the round of 32. I wouldn’t nuke them just yet.

The Metro was an awesome basketball league, but Cincinnsti was awful during that era.

But how does the past ten years compare to their Metro days?

Cincy has done this to themselves. They created this investigation in an attempt to avoid paying Brannen his contract. And Brannen is fighting back with some player support. Cincy will probably have to pay him to leave or he'll stay & can't recruit or Cincy will have a hard time finding a coach that wants to work under those circumstances. Self-imposed implosion.

Agreed...

I think they were hoping that Brannen would accept a lower buyout if they "investigated" him.

Good for Brannen...You owe him what you owe him.

Cronin was at Cincy for 13 years. Only got past the 2nd round one time, and that was only a Sweet 16.

One Sweet 16 in 13 years is not good enough for a program like Cincinnati.

Just crazy that he went to the Final Four in his 2nd year at UCLA.

UCLA has a historically well-known payment plan....

He had some really good years, though. Getting past the S16 takes some luck along the way. It's not the most complete metric to use. But I agree, it would seem he would get past it a time or 2 with the teams he had.

Cronin's not as crazy any more...maybe that had something to do with it.

AKA the UTK method of coaching dismissals....

Unfortunately, I bet UC doesn't have the deep pockets required to execute it effectively.
