Cincinnati, OH (FOX19) - The UC Bearcats wrap up the regular season against Connecticut on Saturday but several online reports indicate Bearcats head coach Butch Jones is the target of Purdue's head coaching search. Footballscoop.com reports Jones will meet with Purdue officials in the coming days but no deal is in place.
Conference realignment has been a concern for Jones. During his time in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Rutgers, Syracuse, TCU and Louisville have all left the Big East for other conferences. The University of Cincinnati has been unable to find a new home in a higher profile conference. At his weekly news conference on Tuesday Jones said, "that security of being in a conference is critical, it is a concern."
The Bearcats are 8 - 3 and can clinch a share of the Big East title with a win over the Huskies Saturday. It would be the second conference title UC has shared in Jones' three seasons as coach.
