On this cold and rainy Sunday, we want to wish a very happy 60th birthday to John Calipari!
In his 10th season in Lexington, Calipari is approaching his 300th win while at the helm of the state’s team. Yesterday, he got an early birthday present in the form of a 4 point road victory over a good Mississippi State team.
Current players, former players and of course his family took to social media to wish the Kentucky head coach a happy birthday!
First, we must show his birthday cake which is a legitimate work of art:
Happy Birthday to @UKCoachCalipari. Everything he’s taught me about putting family first is such an invaluable part of how I live my life.

Happy birthday @UKCoachCalipari I’ll never forget the time you took Our dog for a “walk” on your bike and you came back bloody & with a ripped shirt. You are so much older and wiser now that you have been 42 for 18 years ??? pic.twitter.com/6jUnTsRmss

I’m sure you have seen us continuously say this, but if you don’t follow Ellen Calipari on Instagram, you are 100% missing out. In fact, it is worth downloading the app just for her.
So from all of us here at KSR, happy birthday Coach Cal! Might be worth noting that John Wooden won a national championship the year that he turned 60. Is it a sign of things to come?
