UofL BASKETBALL | Chris Mack Named Louisville MBB Head Coach

03/28/2018 04:47 PM

The “Chris Mack Era” has officially started at the University of Louisville.

The school announced on Wednesday that Chris Mack has been named the head coach of the UofL men’s basketball program.

Mack has been the head coach of the Xavier Musketeers since the 2009-2010 season. He has led Xavier to a 215-97 (.689) record during those nine seasons.

The Musketeers won the Big East regular season championship this past season.

Mack replaces interim head coach David Padgett, who replaced Rick Pitino after Pitino was fired in October stemming from the UofL men’s basketball program alleged link to the FBI investigation into fraud and corruption within college basketball.
