(Louisville, KY) - The Louisville Cardinals basketball program is reportedly hiring Kenny Payne to be its next head coach.
The University of Louisville Board of Trustees must approve the hire, but that's expected to only be a formality. A press conference has been scheduled for Friday morning at 10 a.m. with a "special announcement" regarding the future of the men's basketball program.
Payne played for Louisville from 1985 to 1989 before playing in the NBA for four seasons.
He previously worked as an assistant coach at the University of Kentucky and currently serves as an assistant coach for the New York Knicks.
