Forde also reports that there’s work being done on a potential separation agreement between Mack and Louisville.
This is Mack’s fourth season at Louisville. The Cardinals are currently 11-9 on the season and sit 5-5 in ACC play. They’ve lost their last two games, falling to Florida State on the road and to NC State at home.
Louisville is 68-37 during his time with the program. Prior to taking over the Cardinals, Mack was the head coach at Xavier for 9 seasons. He was 215-97 and led the Musketeers to the NCAA Tournament every year.
