Two days after Rick Pitino was effectively fired, University of Louisville interim president Greg Postel has found the interim basis.
Postel announced on Friday afternoon that David Padgett will lead the Louisville men’s basketball program on an interim basis. Padgett had previously served as an assistant.
The 32-year-old former Cardinal has been on Pitino’s staff since 2014. Initially, he was the program’s director of basketball operations. He was promoted to a full-time assistant in March of 2015.
We’ll have more on the story posted shortly.
