“I’m better than you!!!!”
Ever wonder where being the head coach of Kentucky basketball stacks up against the other schools in the Southeastern Conference?
Of course not.
Why would you wonder that? Kentucky is clearly the best job in the conference, but ESPN still took the time to rank the head coaching jobs in the SEC. Take a look at what the Worldwide Leader had to say about John Calipari’s current employment situation.
1. Kentucky: No school in the country has as loyal and passionate a fan base — the Big Blue fans will camp out for practice. Kentucky’s job pays as much if not more than any other job in the country. Local talent in the state isn’t an issue since UK recruits nationally. There have been blips in recruiting, but that was on the coach, not on the school. If the right coach is in place, Kentucky can and should be in contention for any player it wants, regardless of locale. Rupp Arena could use some more frills (and will get plenty in the near future), but it has history and is as loud as any arena. The Joe Craft Center is a top-notch practice facility. And the Wildcats are coveted by tournaments and television executives looking for a ratings winner.
