Louisville coach Padgett promotes staffer Evans to assistant

Oct 20, 2017 - 8:13 PM LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Louisville interim basketball coach David Padgett has promoted R.J. Evans to acting assistant coach, staying in-house as the program moves forward from this week's firing of coach Rick Pitino. Evans' promotion comes a day after Padgett introduced Greg Paulus as an assistant coach. Hired this spring, Evans recently received on-court responsibilities after assistants Kenny Johnson and Jordan Fair were placed on paid administrative leave. The school acknowledged last month that the program was under investigation in a national federal probe of corruption in college basketball. Louisville's Athletic Association fired Pitino on Monday after 16 years. Padgett says Evans has made a quick transition and developed chemistry with the Cardinal players. ___ For more AP college basketball coverage: http://collegebasketball.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_Top25
