    He is only the 3rd head coach since 1972 when Denny Crum arrived.

    Heard an interesting tidbit on the radio today. Chris Mack's wife, the former Christy Hester, when she played for Holy Cross her senior year was beaten out for Miss Kentucky Basketball by none other than Jamie Walz, who is the sister of UL's women's coach, Jeff Walz.

    UofL spokesman puts out statement saying to hold up a little...he isn't actually the coach just yet.

    Meanwhile, he has offered every recruit in America in the last 12 hours.

    That was for the media. The Board of Trustees took over final calls on hiring for athletics after Jurich was forced out and state law says that all business of public boards has to be done in session.

    Board hasn’t met yet. They are not supposed to have been even informally polled by Postel or Tyra. If they came out and said that the vote was a formality, they’ve fessed up to violations of the state open meetings law.

    In my opinion, it would be better to just say nothing. I don't think the statement was necessary.

    Great hire by U of L! Hopeful Coach Mack extends an offer to Ricardo Johnson that will allow him to remain on staff. Ricardo works hard and is a great young man & role model for the players.

    Instant uproar on Twitter because his shirt is blue.

    Shortly after, a photo-shopped version showed up with his shirt made red.

    Postel acknowledged twice in his introduction that it was difficult to get Chris Mack to leave Xavier.
