Former Louisville Men’s Basketball Assistant Coach Sentenced To Probation for Extortion After Threatening Former Boss After Being Fired

Former Louisville men’s basketball assistant coach Dino Gaudio was sentenced Friday to one year of probation for extortion, five months after he threatened his boss, head coach Chris Mack. Mack recorded the conversation, in which Gaudio threatened him after being told he was being fired, and turned it over to school administrators. The recording then was given to law enforcement. Gaudio was charged in May and entered a guilty plea in June. Mack received a six-game suspension on Friday for failing to follow university policies in his handling of the matter.
