CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The University of Cincinnati has approved 2-year contract extensions for Mick Cronin and Tommy Tuberville.

"The board approved it last week," UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn told FOX19 Now. "This is all a part of the process moving forward."

Cronin is now signed through the 2022-23 season, adding two years to his current 7-year deal.

Cronin has led UC to six straight tournament appearances as the head coach and would be the longest tenured head basketball coach at UC if he stays through the life of his contract. 

Tuberville's extension keeps him at UC through the 2019 season. In three seasons, Tuberville has compiled a 25-14 record with an 0-3 mark in bowl games. 

Last month, Cronin met with UNLV Athletic Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy about the Runnin' Rebels head men's basketball coaching job in Las Vegas.

Kunzer-Murphy told ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas that Cronin verbally committed to signing with the Runnin' Rebels.

But then UC President Santo Ono announced Cronin would be staying in Clifton for his 11th season with the Bearcats.
