Wrong Padgett.

David Padgett’s head coaching career got off to a very unique start. Neither he, nor the rest of the free world, thought he would be Louisville’s head coach at the start of practice.

But here we are, and Louisville’s own newspaper can’t get his name right.

To be fair, Scott Padgett would’ve been a great hire.

    As the season wears on, David might wish it was Scott.

    Classic Louisville stupidity. Sorry you’re having a rough day man. Matt went a little hard this AM.

    I feel bad for Padgett. He has his work cut out for him, with little help from the higher-ups. This is either going to age him prematurely and drive him out of coaching, or prove to be a great opportunity for him. Stay tuned…

    Maybe an unpopular opinion here but i like David Padgett and think he’s a good hire given the circumstances. Back in his playing days at UofL he had some bad luck with injuries but was always a solid contributor when on the court. There was never going to be a big name hire willing to take over in such uncertainty, and with the season so close they needed continuity (though only in basketball…), and so long as Padgett’s name wasn’t associated at all with the scandal then he would seem the perfect man (that being said, KSR had a post the other day pointing out the unlikeliness his hands are completely clean, and I’m not going to argue that point, as i agree it seems unlikely).

    There were also, of course, rumblings that the team basically gave the interim president an ultimatum saying they wouldn’t play if Padgett weren’t named coach, so that might’ve had something to do with it… But regardless i wish him well, though if the season is a train wreck, well i won’t be grieving with them…😉
