No. Not Rick Pitino.
Not Pat Riley.
Not Rick Reilly.
The perfect candidate for the Cincinnati Bearcats job is in fact Kenny from Holliston, the greatest first-time-caller, long-time-listener, I’ll-hang-up-and-listen guy in the history of Boston sports talk radio.
Kenny has asked me to include his application video in this article.
What he lacks in knowledge of Cincinnati, basketball, and the state of Ohio, he makes up for in bravado and handsomeness.

He has plenty of other hot takes on the issues of the day:
Fixin the Sawx:
Kenny’s Boston accent is a little strong in this one, so I tried to translate it into English:
Earth, ocean, air, belovèd brotherhood!
If our great Mother has imbued my soul
With aught of natural piety to feel
Your love, and recompense the boon with mine;
If dewy morn, and odorous noon, and even,
With sunset and its gorgeous ministers,
And solemn midnight’s tingling silentness;
If autumn’s hollow sighs in the sere wood,
And winter robing with pure snow and crowns
Of starry ice the grey grass and bare boughs;
If spring’s voluptuous pantings when she breathes
Her first sweet kisses, have been dear to me;
If no bright bird, insect, or gentle beast
I consciously have injured, but still loved
And cherished these my kindred; then forgive
This boast, belovèd brethren, and withdraw
No portion of your wonted favour now!
