He lost some leverage on his buyout with his audio taping stunt. When the previous AD resigned it just felt like Mack was done. He really showed no passion for it this year. Just tapped out. Take a settlement, and go get one of the mid-level jobs that will be out there this summer.

Peagues probably takes over he is the top assistant.

Mack is a great asset to Louisville. He represents the good, has class, and a great family man. He has a badass boat on Nolin, often a regular at jspa's bar.
It will be a huge mistake to let a guy go so soon.

Per Seth Davis:
Louisville and coach Chris Mack are in the final stages of negotiations for a separation agreement, a source with direct knowledge told The Athletic on Tuesday.

A meeting of Louisville's Board of Trustees and Athletics Board has been called for Wednesday to consider approving the agreement and Tuesday's edition of the Chris Mack Radio Show was canceled. Nothing is finalized but the widespread expectation in Louisville is that Mack has coached his last game there.

Mack is in his fourth season of a seven-year deal with Louisville, which has gone 11-9 (5-5 in ACC play) this year. All five of the Cardinals' conference losses have come in their last six games. After the team's loss to Notre Dame Saturday, center Malik Williams was asked if the players had tuned out the coaching staff, responding "I don’t have a comment for that."

In Mack's first season (2018-19), the team earned a 20-14 record and a No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament. In the 2019-20 campaign, the Cardinals went 24-7 before the postseason was canceled due to COVID-19. In the 2020-21 pandemic-shortened season, Louisville went 13-7.

Mack was previously the head coach at Xavier for nine seasons; he was named National Coach of the Year in 2016. Mack's teams have participated in the NCAA Tournament in nine of his 12 seasons as head coach.

No coach worth a shit wants the Louisville job right now. They better get a new President and AD in place before they even consider making a permanent hire. That plus the unknown about what/when sanctions are coming.
