CINCINNATI (AP) - Coach Mick Cronin is staying at Cincinnati after considering the coaching job at UNLV this week.

Cronin finished his 10th season with the Bearcats, who lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, and had discussions with UNLV about its opening. Cronin said in a statement Friday that he wanted to evaluate his career and his life, and he decided to stay with the Bearcats.

The Cincinnati native dug his alma mater out of a mess following Bob Huggins’ ouster. The Bearcats are 207-129 under Cronin, who has been pushing for an upgrade in their on-campus arena. The school completed an overhaul of its football stadium this past season and is raising money for a major renovation of its multipurpose facility used for basketball.
