Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - University of Cincinnati President Santa J. Ono announced the hiring of Mike Bohn as the school's new director of athletics on Thursday.
Bohn comes to Cincinnati after serving the same role at the University of Colorado from 2005 to 2013. Under Bohn, the Buffaloes won four conference titles within two years, including the first for men's basketball in over 43 years, as they successfully transitioned into the Pac-12 Conference.
"To recruit a leader of Mike's caliber and national standing only reaffirms the strength, promise and pride of UC Athletics. Mike has successfully moved multiple high profile programs to greater heights, and I am confident that he will help us do the same," Ono said in a statement released by the school. "I invite all of you to join me in welcoming Mike and his family to the Bearcat family."
Bohn also served as director of athletics at the University of Idaho from 1999 to 2003 before serving the same role at San Diego State University prior to his time at Colorado.
