You may have noticed that Louisville assistant Luke Murray has a rather famous father: actor and comedian Bill Murray. He used to show up on TV a lot wearing a Xavier hat (when Luke was there) and he’s started going to Louisville games too (he’ll be in Cameron at some point - he followed fellow Chicagoan Mike Krzyzewksi’s career and the two ultimately became friends).

Anyway, Luke now has his own claim to fame: he’s been ranked as the #2 recruiter among college assistants behind Arizona’s Mark Phelps, who is suspended after the UA recruiting scandal erupted.

If he gets his own gig at some point, his father will be a major recruiting asset.
