UPDATED: Tennessee Basketball Coaching Hot Board

Mick Cronin (Cincinnati)

Mick CroninPros: He’s another young coach (43) with an impressive track record. He served as an assistant under Bob Huggins and Rick Pitino before taking the head coaching job at Murray State. In three years there he took his team to the NCAA Tournament twice and won three conference championships. He has served as the head coach at Cincinnati for nine years, earning four NCAA Tournament berths (all in the last four years). In 12 years as a head coach, he has a 252-141 record (64%). His fiery personality would endear him to Vol fans.

Cons: He reportedly makes close to (or over) $2 million a season and could command more than Dave Hart wants to spend. He’s from Cincy and went to school there – he’d be a long shot even if the money is right.
