When Orlando Antigua left Lexington for sunnier pastures back in April, there was a rumor floating around that Jalen Rose was a candidate to fill his seat on the UK bench. At the time, it was just that: a rumor. But today, Rose released his latest podcast and it included some talk that adds a little credibility to that rumor.
Rose told his podcast co-host, Dan Jacoby, “There are a few college coaches that I would consider working for; John Calipari is one of them.” When Jacoby asked he if had spoken to Cal about it, Rose said, “I plead the fifth.”
Rose then went on to talk about how much he loves his job on ESPN’s NBA coverage and with Bill Simmons on Grantland, adding that it would take a special opportunity to pull him away.
