Murray State Head Coach Chris Hatcher Previews Louisville

Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher met with the media earlier this week to preview Saturday’s game against Louisville. First thing first, I think we can all agree that Coach Hatcher’s accent and voice is as good as any coach that Louisville will face this season.
