Chris Mack has been the head coach at Xavier for five seasons and has a career record of 111-57 (.661) and has made the NCAA Tournament in four of his five seasons as head coach, including two Sweet Sixteen appearances. Mack led Xavier to Atlantic 10 regular season championships in 2010 and 2011 and for his efforts he was named Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year in 2011. Prior to being named head coach of Xavier in 2009 was an assistant at Xavier from 2004-2009. Mack was an assistant at Wake Forest under Skip Prosser from 2001-2004.

During his time at Xavier he recruited one 5 star, 10 4 stars, six 3 stars and one unranked player.

Xavier has a strong tradition of being a grooming location for great head coaches. Previous head coaches include Sean Miller of Arizona, Thad Matta of Ohio State, Skip Prosser of Wake Forest, and Pete Gillen of Virginia.

Mack's teams have a history of being very balanced. His teams have been top 90 both offensively and defensively every year, with the exception of the 2012-2013 season in which his offense was 125th in offensive efficiency.

This year's Xavier team went 21-13 and lost to North Carolina State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
