Don’t worry, friends, Coach Cal is back on U.S. soil and eager to get back to work with his team at Kentucky. Over on his website, Calipari thanked the fans for supporting the Dominican Republic team and he assured us that he didn’t miss a beat while he was away. Here’s a little bit from his ‘Special Thanks To BBN‘ on CoachCal.com:
Now, what will I be doing now that this over? For the next six or seven days, I will be in homes and in schools of the recruits we’re involved with. I’ll be in Lexington for one day this week but I’ll be back on the road recruiting that night.
Even though I’ve been in South America for the last few days during the contact period, I did three home visits from the speakerphone. Obviously, it’s not as effective as sitting face to face, but I wanted those young people to know that even though I was coaching a national team, they were on the forefront of my mind.
We will have individual skill instruction sessions Wednesday, which I’ve been thinking about for two weeks. I can’t wait to get back at it with this team that I’ll be coaching. I miss those guys, and they know that. I’ve texted and talked to them all.
So quit fretting about Coach Cal’s absence from the program. He was still recruiting hard from Argentina and he is going to hit it even harder this week.
Welcome home, Coach. We’ve missed you.
