Cincinnati Bearcats Coaches Caravan, presented by City Barbeque

May 26, 2011

The 2011 University of Cincinnati Coaches Caravan, presented by City Barbeque, kicks off on Wednesday, June 1, 2011, a five-stop tour through the month of June that will visit locations throughout the tri-State area.

UC and City Barbeque, the exclusive barbeque of UC Athletics, are partnering to bring UC coaches to the community.

 The caravan will travel to five different City Barbeque locations every Wednesday night in June from 6-7:00 p.m.

Fans are encouraged to stop by the different locations to meet head football coach Butch Jones, head men's basketball coach Mick Cronin , head women's basketball coach Jamelle Elliott, head baseball coach Brian Cleary, and head women's soccer coach Michelle Salmon and others (coaches appearing at each individual location will vary).

Jones and Elliott are scheduled for the opening caravan event on June 1 at the Glenway City Barbeque location (6475 Glenway Avenue in Cincinnati). 

During each event, UC Athletics will raffle off some great prizes, including tickets, apparel, City Barbeque gift certificates, and autographed memorabilia for the fans in attendance.
