CINCINNATI (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says Texas Tech’s Tommy Tuberville has agreed to become Cincinnati’s football coach.

The agreement came one day after Butch Jones left to become Tennessee’s next football coach, ending a week of uncertainty for the Bearcats (9-3). Cincinnati has won a share of four of the last five Big East titles and will play in the Belk Bowl.

Tuberville resigned as Texas Tech’s coach on Saturday afternoon and was expected to be introduced at Cincinnati later in the day, said a person speaking on condition of anonymity because the hiring had not been announced.

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.
