Chris Mack is really trying to get us to like Louisville basketball.
First he tweeted about Matt’s favorite restaurant, Rooster’s, and now he’s hiring a friend of the program, Dino Gaudio.
Gaudio is expected to be introduced as the third UofL assistant sometime this week, maybe even as early as later today. Mack and Gaudio have a relationship going all the way back to Mack’s playing days when Gaudio was an assistant on Xavier’s staff. They’ve also worked together at Xavier and Wake Forest.
The biggest aspect of this story, to Kentucky fans, is Gaudio is a very close friend to John Calipari. Gaudio works the John Calipari Fantasy Camp every year (although that will end this year) and the two have a mutual respect and admiration for each other that might make the rivalry a little friendlier than it has been in the past.
