After months of speculating on who would replace Kenny Klein, who retired after 39 years with Louisville Athletics, his replacement has been named. Zach Greenwell has been named the new Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations and Strategic Communications.
The position becomes a hybrid as Louisville combines two departments- Media Relations and Creative/Digital Communications. Rocco Gasparro has been promoted to the Director of Media Relations and Carl Schmid has been promoted to the Director of Creative Communications. Greenwell will oversee both departments as well as be the primary media relations contact for Louisville men's basketball.
Prior to Louisville, Greenwell was a senior associate athletic director for communications, brand strategy, and men's basketball at Western Kentucky. He oversaw WKU Athletics Communications/Media Relations department, which included strategic communications, budgeting, creative content, digital programming, TV/radio/streaming agreements, publications, record keeping, and website maintenance.
The Athletic's "College Sports 40 Under 40" named Greenwell to their list last week.
Volleyball Moves Up to #3
After a perfect start (3-0 record, 9-0 in sets) to the season, Louisville volleyball has moved up from #4 to #3 in the AVCA Coaches poll.
Texas retained the top overall spot with Nebraska close behind. Minnesota moved up a spot to #4 and Georgia Tech leapt up several spots to #5. Pitt is the only other ACC school in the Top 25 at #10.
Louisville visits #22 Western Kentucky on Wednesday before coming home to open up the home season against #15 San Diego. #8 Ohio State will be right after. To keep the ranked streak going, the fourth match from now will see the Cards visiting #11 Purdue.
The toughest part of the schedule begins now.
Happy Tuesday and Go Cards!
