Cincinnati Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin will miss the team's game against VCU today with an "unruptured aneurysm," according to the school.

Cronin was tested after suffering from lingering headaches. Doctors have told him to take a break from coaching until the situation is resolved. Here's the school's statement, via NBC Sports:

"Coach Cronin is doing well," UC team physician Dr. Michael Donaworth said. "While he would love to be courtside, he understands our decision. His health is our biggest priority.

"I appreciate the UC Health medical community for all they have done to get to the bottom of my issue as quickly as possible," Cronin said. "Obviously, I am being held out of coaching the team for precautionary reasons which I fully understand. I have total confidence in my coaching staff and players that they will be focused and ready to play today."


Assistant coach Larry Davis will fill in for Cronin while he recovers. Cronin seems to be in good spirits:
