Mar 9, 2020
In his first season heading UCLA men's basketball, Mick Cronin has been named the 2020 Pac-12 Coach of the Year. The Bruins went 19-12, including 12-6 in conference play, en route to a 2-seed in the upcoming Pac-12 Tournament. UCLA improved by three games over last season's 9-9 mark in Pac-12 games. Cronin's Bruins — who were picked eighth in the preseason media poll — came back from a 7-6 non-conference mark and 1-3 league start to finish second in the Pac-12 standings just a game behind predicted champion Oregon. It is Cronin’s third career conference Coach of the Year award along with the Ohio Valley in 2006 and The American in 2014.
