Andy Katz: John Calipari to be next Kentucky coach

 

Cc_calipari_medium

Andy Katz does not lie, so it appears that John Calipari will be next coach at Kentucky. It's the most logical move for the university, and for Calipari; he loves attention, is a winner but also an asshole, and possesses the innate ability to describe his dribble-drive-motion offense using various kitchen accessories and condiments.  Whether or not he will sucessfully implement the quick-hitting philosophy into a program that has recently gone bland remains to be seen.  

Right now, the years and dollars being thrown around are near mind-boggling: 8 years for $35 million.  If that's so, it would make him the game's highest paid coach surpassing Billy Donovan.  

UK's fan base is one of the most enjoyable to observe, so I would suggest browsing WLXG.comTheCatsDomain.com, or the CatsPause if you're a RIvals member.

And of course keep up on A Sea of Blue, SBNation's UK blog. 

More on this as it is made available.
