Arkansas State to introduce Louisville's Balado as new coach
JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State University has scheduled a news conference to introduce Louisville assistant coach Mike Balado as the new head coach of the Red Wolves.
The university said in a Sunday news release that the news conference will be Monday morning on the ASU campus.
Balado has spent the past four seasons at Louisville, which is 25-8 and the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Midwest Regional going into a Sunday game against Michigan.
Balado replaces Grant McCasland, who resigned Monday to become head coach at the University of North Texas after leading ASU to a 20-12 record in his only season at ASU.
