The athletic department announced Neal is stepping down for personal reasons. A source told FOX19 NOW Sports that Neal’s departure was not unexpected.
“We respect Coach Neal’s decision to step down,” Bohn said. “We appreciate what Ty has done to escalate the academic and athletic profiles of the program with an APR score which improved from 948 to 989 and an RPI which improved 147 spots over the past four years. We wish him the best moving forward.”
Cincinnati finished the 2017 regular season with a 28-28 record overall and a 10-14 mark in American Athletic Conference play.
Ted Tom will serve as the program’s interim head coach for the 2017 postseason. Tom is in his third season at UC and had a 203-193 record in seven seasons as the head coach at Shawnee State University.
