Report: Louisville, coach Chris Mack negotiating final stages of separation agreement

and coach are in the final stages of negotiations for a separation agreement, a source with direct knowledge told The Athletic on Tuesday.

A meeting of Louisville's Board of Trustees and Athletics Board has been called for Wednesday to consider approving the agreement and Tuesday's edition of the Chris Mack Radio Show was canceled. Nothing is finalized but the widespread expectation in Louisville is that Mack has coached his last game there.

Mack is in his fourth season of a seven-year deal with Louisville, which has gone 11-9 (5-5 in ACC play) this year. All five of the Cardinals' conference losses have come in their last six games. After the team's loss to Notre Dame Saturday, center Malik Williams was asked if the players had tuned out the coaching staff, responding “I don't have a comment for that.”
