After all of that, UCLA ended up hiring Mick Cronin. After being turned down by John Calipari, TCU’s Jamie Dixon, and Tennessee’s Rick Barnes, the Bruins settled for Cincinnati’s head coach, giving him a six-year contract worth $24 million. He will be introduced at a press conference tomorrow morning.

Imagine being a UCLA fan last Monday, hearing the news that your school is swinging for the fences by going after John Calipari, and then finding out this morning that you ended up with Mick freaking Cronin. They should have just kept Steve Alford.
Life comes at you fast.
