Another day, another Louisville coach in trouble

One day after one of Louisville’s new assistant football coaches got arrested, we learn a head coach within UofL athletics may be in some hot water too.

According to WDRB in Louisville, the head coach of the men’s tennis team has been placed on paid administrative leave. The coach, Rex Ecarma, has been at Louisville for 30 years and now his bosses are looking into his program after issues raised by some of his players.

A spokesperson for UofL told WDRB it is “due process” to conduct a review when concerns are raised, but would any of you be surprised if this turns out to be something spicy? Of course not. It is Louisville we’re talking about here. Nothing will surprise us at this point.

IS ANYONE OVER THERE NORMAL

    But the previous athletic director did SO much for the programs! How could you even think of blaming the person responsible for oversight?! How dare you!

    Maybe he was spending to much time staring at women’s tennis.

    This shocks me. Rex Ecarma is a Tennis legend, far in excess of 30+ years. Looking forward to his side of the story.

    Quit using the L word, they should now be known as U6 only. If you must use L word Loserville would be acceptable.

    I have the pleasure of knowing Rex . He is a very fine man . Like said earlier I’ll look forward to the whole story. I know this is the new day that you are guilty just because someone accuses you .. but let’s hear the whole story before we convict a good man
