CINCINNATI (AP) - Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville has agreed to become Cincinnati's football coach. The news comes one day after Butch Jones left the Bearcats for Tennessee. Cincinnati has won a share of four of the last five Big East titles and will play in the Belk Bowl. Tuberville takes over a program that has been a stepping stone job for the last three head coaches. Mark Dantonio, Brian Kelly and Jones all left after three years.
