Louisville didn't take long to make its first offseason move, parting ways interim men's basketball coach David Padgett less than 24 hours after the Cardinals season ended.
The former Cardinals player was brought in to bring calm amid turmoil and upheaval after the school placed coach Rick Pitino on unpaid administrative leave following its acknowledgement that it was being investigated in a federal corruption probe of college basketball .
Padgett did his job. He went 22-14 after being elevated from second-year Louisville assistant last fall.
