Calipari Confirms He Isn’t Leaving While Brad’s at UK

john_calipari8

When Brad Calipari committed to play for his Dad at Kentucky, we knew it was a good sign.  Fans asked themselves, “There’s no way he could leave for the NBA with his son on the team, right?”

Today Calipari answered that lingering question.

“My son’s now here so my son’s walking on, I’m not gonna leave,” the 57-year-old Calipari told ESPN.com. “I would say four to five years is a lock and then after that, [shoot], I may be hanging it up. At that point I’d be 60, 61. I never thought I would coach past the age of 60 because I’m not … basketball isn’t my life.”

Even though he’s seemed happy at Kentucky for quite some time, it’s easy to get anxious whenever a head coaching vacancy occurs in the NBA, especially when it’s a team filled with his former players.  Fear no more.  The NBA doesn’t have the same appeal as it used to.

“It would be believable if I didn’t have this job,” Calipari said. “There are coaches who come through here from the NBA. They say he’d be crazy to come into this league. He’s got everything he needs right there. Why would he? It wouldn’t be about finances.”

    We have to find a way to get Brad more than 4 years of eligibility! 🙂

      He needs to redshirt at least one year to work on some aspects of his game 😉

    Right now Big Blue Nation is thanking their lucky stars that Mark Stoops’ son is too young to be eligible to play for UK.

    My biggest fear about Calipari is not that he leave, but the schmuck that our AD will hire to replace him. His record hiring coaches is not so good it would seem.

    Don’t blame him at all, that’s long enough.

    A younger girl (on twitter) said BC told her he doesn’t like white girls. If things haven’t changed that poor kid is going to have a long 4 years.

    But what about the bigger question? Is Brad going to get frustrated with playing time and decide to leave while his dad is UK?! (Meant to be humor, not divisive)
