ACC basketball news: Louisville fires Chris Mack

·1 min read

The speculation is finally over as Louisville has fired head basketball coach Chris Mack. This comes as the Cardinals are just 11-9 overall and sit in eighth place in the ACC at 5-5 in conference play.

Mack, who took over the Louisville program in 2018-2019, led the Cardinals to a No. 1 national ranking in December of 2019 but they’ve struggled to just a 24-16 mark over the past year-and-a-half.

Mack’s last home game as Louisville’s head came last Saturday in a loss to Notre Dame.
