Cincinnati coach Jones weighing options
CINCINNATI (AP) — Coach Butch Jones was weighing his options Tuesday after returning to Cincinnati's campus after two days of interviews at Purdue and Colorado.
Jones attended a news conference about the Bearcats' appearance in the Belk Bowl on Dec. 27 against Duke. Cincinnati (9-3) finished with a share of the Big East title for the fourth time in the last five years.
Jones said he intended to coach the Bearcats in their bowl game, but cut off further questions about his decision. School officials were meeting with him to see what it would take to keep him at Cincinnati, where he's finishing his third season.
He signed a contract extension following last season that stretches through 2017 with a $1.4 million buyout if he leaves before Jan. 1.
