LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville's Board of Trustees and the school's Athletic Association have scheduled a joint meeting for Wednesday amid a report that coach Chris Mack will soon be out.

The agenda announcement Tuesday said both boards will "discuss proposed or pending litigation and personnel matters," but didn't mention Mack. The Athletic reported Tuesday night that the fourth-year coach and the school are finalizing a separation agreement, pending board approval.

Louisville (11-9, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) is in danger of missing the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive spring. The Cardinals have lost five of their last six games. They are 6-8 since the coach returned on Dec. 1 from a six-game suspension by the school for failing to follow university guidelines in the handling of an extortion attempt by fired assistant Dino Gaudio.
