The decision to extend Cronin comes after he led the Bruins on an incredible Final Four run as an 11 seed in the tournament.

They came within one shot of making the national title game.

If you’re a fan of UCLA, I’d have to imagine that you’re very happy with this move. In fact, the main UCLA fan I know is pumped.

It’s been a long time since UCLA basketball has been great, but Cronin took them the farthest that they’ve been since 2008.

Clearly, he has something working in his favor.

When you find a great coach in college sports, you do whatever is necessary to keep him. UCLA has found their man for the basketball team, and they’re making sure he’s not leaving. It’s 100% the right call to extend him.
