Cincinnati averaged over 30 points per game in Tuberville's first three seasons. This year, the Bearcats averaged just 19.3 points per game, which ranked 120th in the nation.

Western Kentucky's Jeff Brohm will be the leading candidate at Cincinnati if the school can land him ahead of possibly two Power 5 options (Purdue and Baylor). Others include Air Force coach Troy Calhoun and Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell. Buckeyes assistant Kerry Coombs also could get a look as he has extensive roots in the Cincinnati area.

Tulsa beats Cincinnati 40-37 in OT

After the Bearcats' Josh Pasley kicked a 33-yard field goal, Golden Hurricane RB James Flanders followed his blocking up the middle for the winning touchdown. Tulsa is 9-3 while Cincinnati finished 4-8.

Cincinnati falls to Tulsa 40-37 in overtime. Bearcats finish 4-8 and it likely means the end for UC coach Tommy Tuberville. On the other sideline, Philip Montgomery posts a 9-3 record in his second season with Tulsa. Expect to hear his name for Power 5 jobs in the near future, perhaps this year if there's a favorable chain reaction of openings.
