NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Louisville Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

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?

Let us know in the comment section below.
