Cincinnati coach to miss games because of an aneurysm

Mick Cronin is a big name in the coaching world and his team, the Cincinnati Bearcats, are about to suffer a big loss. The coach has an unruptured aneurysm and he found out when he went in this week to get tests after experiencing severe headaches. An aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. A school spokesman declined to say exactly where the aneurysm is located. Cronin was sick, but coached through it in a 71-62 overtime win against No. 19 San Diego State. Associate head coach Larry Davis will run the team in Cronin's absence starting with the game against VCU on Saturday. Cronin is in his ninth season as the head coach of the Bearcats.
