Mick Cronin to have more tests

Cincinnati's Mick Cronin is at home resting and will continue to undergo tests for his unruptured aneurysm, the coach told ESPN on Tuesday.

"I want to say thank you to everyone who has reached out to me,'' Cronin said in a text message. "Because we play [Tuesday], I want the focus to be on my team and our game. I am not in danger and neither is my coaching career.''

Cronin, 43, said he is listening to doctors as to the next step in his treatment. He will be away from the team indefinitely.

Assistant coach Larry Davis will coach the Bearcats against Wagner on Tuesday night. Davis coached the Bearcats in a 68-47 loss to VCU on Saturday.

The unruptured aneurysm was detected when Cronin underwent tests this week to see why he's been having headaches.

An aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. A school spokesman declined to say exactly where Cronin's is located.
