Ty Neal signs extension at Cincinnati

Former Indiana assistant coach Ty Neal signed a contract extension through 2019 as head coach at Cincinnati, ending any speculation that he might replace his former boss Tracy Smith at Indiana.

It doesn’t appear, however, that Neal was strongly pursued by Indiana for the position. The Hoosiers have  had two coaches in for interviews — Louisville assistant Chris Lemonis and Ball State head coach Rich Maloney, who are apparently the frontrunners for the position.
