It’s approaching 7 pm on a very crazy day, but it looks like UK has their man – for somewhere in the neighborhood of $32 million over 8 years. WHAS and WLEX both cited the same report from the Memphis Commercial-Appeal (so did ESPNews) that John Calipari was set to be introduced as UK’s head coach, but after a Memphis news report said otherwise and DeMarcus Cousins said Calipari told him it was “untrue”, things seemed uncertain again. But, Lee Todd confirmed to the Herald-Leader that negotiations with a new coach (never saying it was Calipari) were going to move quickly which seems to mean that the negotiations with Calipari are fruitful to this point. Rick Bozich said that he expects an announcement to come as early as tomorrow or as late as Thursday and I think it’s finally safe to say that when that announcement comes, John Calipari will be named as the new coach of the University of Kentucky.
Thank goodness. He is great photoshop material.
