CINCINNATI (AP) -- Texas Tech s Tommy Tuberville has agreed to become Cincinnati s next football coach.
The agreement came one day after Butch Jones left to become Tennessee s next football coach, ending a week of uncertainty for the Bearcats (9-3). Cincinnati has won a share of four of the last five Big East titles and will play in the Belk Bowl.
Tuberville resigned as Texas Tech s coach on Saturday afternoon and was expected to be introduced at Cincinnati later in the day after a basketball game.
Tuberville takes over a program that has been a stepping stone job for the last three head coaches. Mark Dantonio, Brian Kelly and
Jones all left after three years for bigger programs Michigan State, Notre Dame and Tennessee.
