    Naming Mack this week may allow for some good publicity within the national NCAA tournament coverage.

    Tyra has already locked Dan McDonnell into an extension to coach baseball. If he’s all but locked in Chris Mack, I’m absolutely in favor of him being the permanent AD. I think he’s going to get Walz locked in to an extension soon too, if reports are to be believed.

    Does a lot of damage to the “Louisville can’t do this without Jurich” narrative that some local fans have been peddling since his termination.

    Those in the "Jurich camp" won't have much to hang on to anymore if/when Tyra completes those three tasks (McDonnell, Walz, Mack). Those are the same folks that thought everything would fall apart once he left.

    I hope Tyra can change the seating at the YUM to get some more vocal and energetic fans in the seats close to the court. I know its a trade-off - good fans vs. big money - but let's get some energy down there, like there was at the first couple NIT games.

    The McD suggestion doesn't ring true. Jurich locked him up in JUN 2016 with a 10 yr. $10.6M deal making him the highest paid coach in baseball. Maybe Tyra is going to sweeten and extend that deal a bit, but the foundation was clearly laid by Jurich.

    That said, I support Tyra and thought Jurich had to go in order to get things fixed and a clean slate to start from.

    I agree. It will be interesting to see what happens when that time comes. IMO, one of his assistants would get a shot.

    When Coach K decides to hang it up we will finally see who his favorite is. I think (which he totally deserves) will hand pick his replacement.

    You are right. It wasn’t McDonnell that just extended. It was men’s soccer coach Ken Lolla. My apologies.

    Is it a violation to recruit for another school while employed by your current school?

    Thanks.

    I was skeptical. It seemed pretty hard to believe, but it came from a verified account so thought it was worth noting.
