Louisville's men's basketball program has yet to hire a new head coach. That will change soon, though.

Multiple reports are suggesting that Xavier head coach Chris Mack will be the program's next head coach. An official announcement could come soon.

A former Louisville star seems to know it's happening, too.

Utah Jazz rookie guard Donovan Mitchell dropped a not-so-subtle tweet earlier this afternoon.

He's excited.

Jon Rothstein reported earlier today that Mack will be the next head coach, barring something unforeseen.

"The Louisville Cardinals and current Xavier Musketeers head basketball coach Chris Mack remain in the midst of contract negotiations, multiple sources have informed FanRag Sports. Barring something unforeseen, Mack will become the ACC program’s next head coach.

An official announcement is expected soon."

Stay tuned.
