According to The Athletic’s Seth Davis, Louisville Cardinals basketball head coach Chris Mack will most likely be on his way out of the program. Mack and the Board will reportedly meet on Wednesday to discuss a separation agreement with assistant Mike Pegues set to act as interim head coach.

When Mack was hired it seemed like everyone deemed the acquisition a home run and there wasn’t a better candidate on the market. It’s safe to say that couldn’t have been more incorrect. In less than four seasons with Louisville, Mack will leave with a 68-37 record that resulted in just one NCAA Tournament appearance (2018) in which he lost in the first round.
The Cardinals are currently 11-9 and 1-5 over their last six games. Their recruiting classes have been subpar. The school currently has an interim athletic director as well as an interim president. All in all, life as Louisville’s head coach hasn’t exactly been sunshine and rainbows.
What was your reaction to the Chris Mack news? Were you surprised? In what direction will Louisville go in their search for a new head coach?
Dominique Yates took to Twitter with his list of possible replacements. Do you think this former Wildcat coach will receive an offer?

Have to be happy for Big Papi.
No former Wildcats left in this year’s NFL playoffs.
This is what we like to see.
How will the the rest of the season finish up?
Will he end up coaching somewhere else?
Best weekend of football in recent history?
A new face to orchestrate moves in Chicago.
Who are you picking this weekend?
Prayers for these two athletes.
