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:
