Louisville basketball head coach Pat Kelsey.

The Louisville men’s basketball team is getting a badly needed reboot at all levels of the program.

Not only does it have a new head coach for the 2024-25 season with Pat Kelsey taking over for Kenny Payne, but it is going to have an almost entirely new roster next season, mainly because every scholarship player from the 2023-24 team has now entered the transfer portal.

That became official on Tuesday afternoon when Ty-Laur Johnson, a freshman point guard, entered the portal. He had been the last remaining scholarship player on the team to do so.

All of these changes are desperately needed for a once proud program that has rapidly become one of the worst in men’s basketball. It was only a decade ago that the Cardinals were winning a national title; they are now coming off a two-year run that saw them go just 12-52 under Payne while going just 5-35 in ACC games.

Kelsey has already worked to bring in new talent, landing transfers Reyne Smith and James Scott, while Terrence Edwards, the Sun Belt player of the year, is expected to make a visit to the campus this week.

Louisville has not made the tournament since the 2018-19 season and has qualified in just two of the past nine years. Now, it is finally getting a true fresh start.
