Xavier hires Mack

Posted on: April 14, 2009 1:37 pm

Xavier will promote Chris Mack to succeed Sean Miller as the school's head basketball coach, multiple sources told on Tuesday.

A press conference is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday.

Miller left Xavier last week to succeed Lute Olson at Arizona. Almost immediately, Mack was tabbed as the leading candidate, and his position was strengthened when Miller -- plus most of the players and recruits -- endorsed the 39-year-old assistant.

Mack is a former Xavier player and graduate of the school.

He inherits what should be a Top 25 team.

Xavier hires Mack

Best of luck to Mack. He has the support of a lot of players, hopefully he's able to use that to propel Xavier in Miller's absence. I'd love to see him in the mold of Boeheim- player turned assistant turned longtime coach, all at the same university. Good luck!
