Petino Adds Former Owls Assistant Coach Mike Balado to Louisville Staff

Mike is a great guy, very happy for him!

===========================


"Mike brings a wealth of experience in both the recruiting world and in coaching," said Pitino. "An important factor in adding him to our staff was his knowledge of what we do defensively and in scouting, after working with Richard (Pitino) for a year. It should not take a great deal of time in acclimating him to our program. He's a tireless worker and he should fit like a glove. He also brings another facet to our recruiting efforts, as he speaks fluent Spanish and has connections throughout Latin America."

"I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to work for Coach Pitino and the University of Louisville," said Balado. "Given the chance to learn from arguably the best coach, mentor, and person in the game of basketball is truly a blessing."

I'm glad things have gone well for Balado. It's my understanding he wanted to stay at FAU.
