Rumble Xavier basketball head coach Chris Mack will cut his long ties to the Musketeers: He announced Tuesday he'd be leaving, and sources tell ESPN he's taking the top job at the University of Louisville for about $4 million per season in a seven-year deal. Mack tweeted he loved and would miss Xavier, but felt "felt like this situation offered a new and unique challenge that I could not turn down." Though he all but confirmed the Louisville move, Mack's statement didn't mention where, exactly, he was going.
