There is no update on who will take over as interim coach.
After starting the year 2-8 with current players and recruits dropping left and right, Louisville had no other option but to front the $14.1 million buyout. The Cards have lost seven consecutive games, and things aren’t getting better anytime soon.
End of an era.
