One day after Butch Jones resigned to leave for Tennessee, the University of Cincinnati has a new coach. Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville was being introduced at a Saturday evening event at Fifth Third Arena as the 41st football head coach at UC.
Tuberville coached the Red Raiders for 3 years, leading the team to a 20-17 record and two bowl appearances. In 17 years as a head coach, he holds a 130-77 record.
UC football coach Butch Jones resigned today to take the coaching spot at the University of Tennessee.
Jones will not coach the Bearcats in their upcoming bowl game against Duke. UC has named assistant head coach Steve Stripling as interim head coach. Stripling, a 30-year coaching veteran who joined UC in 2010, will lead the team in the Belk Bowl December 27 if a new head coach isn't hired by then.
UC Athletics Director Whit Babcock said the search for a new coach will begin immediately. He did not specify a time frame for concluding the search.
Ohio Democrats will hunker down in Washington for next month's presidential inauguration at one of the city's most luxurious and historic hotels - the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel on Connecticut Avenue NW.
If you want to go along for the fun, there's a rather hefty price tag.
According to an e-mail sent out by the Ohio Democratic Party, the "Mayflower Package" costs $4,200 per person.
