Louisville dating coach
-- Louisville assistant men's basketball coach David Padgett was named acting head coach of the program on Friday, just two days after Rick Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave after being linked to a federal corruption investigation that has rocked college basketball.Interim president Greg Postel announced the hire during a late-afternoon news conference on campus.He led the Fighting Saints to three straight Frontier Conference Championships and was named the league's most valuable player in 19.
In each of his two seasons in that position, Carroll had the top-rated offense in NAIA football.Padgett, a former player who returned to the program as director of basketball operations in 2014, averaged 11.2 points per game as a senior at Louisville during the 2007-08 season.The former prep All-American played overseas for two seasons before joining IUPUI's staff and commencing his coaching career."David is known by all as a hard worker," Postel said.Bowen has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities, but he's still on campus, Padgett said.
Padgett said he still has a relationship with Pitino.
Before Bobby Petrino coached with his father, he played football for him at Carroll.
