With Xavier hiring Travis Steele as their next head coach, Chris Mack has a vacant spot on his staff.
Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports that former Wake Forest head coach Dino Gaudio is in the mix to join Mack’s staff as an assistant coach.
The report states that Mack is “working on securing” a deal to hire Gaudio.
Mack and Gaudio worked at Wake Forest together as assistant coaches for the late Skip Prosser from 2001-04.
Gaudio took over at Wake Forest after Prosser passed away in 2007. In three seasons Gaudio finished with an impressive 61-31 record, but was fired in 2010. He’s since worked as an analyst for ESPN.
Luke Murray and Mike Pegues were assistant coaches for Mack at Xavier and will join him at Louisville.
