Doneal Mack, who transferred from the University of Memphis basketball team last month, is working to reconcile with Tigers coach John Calipari and return to the program, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation told The Commercial Appeal on Tuesday.

Doneal Mack is looking to return to the University of Memphis after transferring to the University of New Orleans.

The news was also reported by ESPN.com’s Andy Katz, citing an e-mail from John Jordan, Mack’s former coach at Statesville Christian High in North Carolina.

Mack’s return could be complicated by the fact that he enrolled in summer classes at New Orleans last week, but the NCAA handbook allows for student-athletes to return to their original schools without penalty if they don’t “engage in other countable athletically related activities … at the second institution beyond a 14 consecutive-day period.”

In other words, assuming Calipari welcomes Mack back to Memphis – and all indications are that he will, according to the sources – he will be eligible to play for the Tigers next season.

Reached by phone Tuesday, Calipari declined comment.

Mack averaged 12.5 minutes per game for the Tigers last season but left initially because of playing time concerns.

  1. That isn’t right how Doneal Mack wants to flip flop on UNO (this is where I attend college). 😦 UNO doesn’t deserve this at all. 😦
