According to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein, Cincinnati is expected to part ways with head basketball coach John Brannen. Last week, the school suspended Brannen amid allegations related to the men’s basketball program which led to an internal investigation.
“BREAKING: University of Cincinnati suspends #Bearcats MBB coach John Brannen effective immediately, sources tell @TheAthletic,” Justin Williams of The Athletic tweeted on Saturday. “Suspension lasts until UC external review is complete. It is believed the review is exploring potential of for-cause firing. No timeline on UC's review.”
The school released a statement regarding the suspension.
