New UofL head coach is former ASM client, son-in-law of Pitino’s close friend

What a hire by the University of Louisville today!

Not only did UofL introduce a 29-year-old with no head coaching experience as its new interim head coach, but it gave the job to the son-in-law of one of Rick Pitino’s best friends who was at Porcini’s the night the 15-second magic happened back in 2003.

Oh, and he is a former client of Andy Miller at ASM Sports. That’s pretty hilarious, too.

Of course I am referring to David Padgett, the only Louisville assistant coach expected to survive the latest scandal (because I’m sure he was unaware of any funny business in recruiting). Padgett has officially been named the interim head coach for the upcoming season and, boy, does he have a mess on his hands.

See ya December 29!

Hopefully it’s as memorable as last time:

    I’m currently watching the press conference, along with the live WHAS11 poll asking fans if Louisville made the right coaching hire. Apparently 89% of Louisville’s fan base is incredibly delusional, voting “yes.” How dumb are these people???

    If there are any relatives of friends of Drew Franklin’s who was present when Franklin did something really stupid you’re apparently damaged goods. Hate to break the news to you.

      Thanks for the incredibly fallacious apples to oranges comparison. You lose. Nice effort though. C-

      Better analogy: if you were with him when he committed some sort of crime you would be considered an accessory to that crime. Padgett was part of the coaching staff during all of this so therefore they aren’t “cleaning house” like everyone wanted.

    Yeah, but DP won’t decry the effects of shoe companies on aau and college basketball, so that’s what matters.

    Let’s face it, coaches aren’t lining up to take this job. University-6 just needs someone to weather the storm. He’s doing them a favor.

    Padgett always seemed like a good guy, one of the few UL players from recent years that I ever respected
