Kenny Payne, who will be introduced as the next Louisville head men’s basketball coach on Friday, has arrived in the Derby City.
Payne’s plane landed at Bowman Field just after 5 p.m. on Thursday. The first man to greet him as he exited the plane? Denny Crum.

Payne that posed for pictures with Crum, Wade Houston and interim U of L athletic director Josh Heird. He then spoke very briefly with the members of the media who were in attendance.

Hugging it out with Denny Crum in a U of L (adidas) polo already gets us off to a better start than Chris Mack “Blue Shirt-Gate” back in 2018.
I suspect that tomorrow morning is going to be a lot of fun.
