Former Wake assistant new Xavier coach

Xavier will turn to another former ACC assistant coach to run its basketball program. Chris Mack will replace Sean Miller as Xavier's basketball coach, according to the school.

Mack coached for three seasons with the late Skip Prosser at Wake Forest before joining Miller's staff in 2004. Miller, a former N.C. State assistant, left Xavier last week for Arizona.

Former ACC head coaches Prosser and Pete Gillen also preceded Mack at Xavier.
