John Calipari becomes $1.6 million richer tomorrow


Friday’s payday for a lot of folks, but I don’t think any of us will cash a check like the one John Calipari will. Tomorrow, Cal gets his $1.6 million retention bonus for the 2014-2015 season, the first of many in his latest contract. Here’s how much Cal will get if he stays on each season from now through 2020-2021:

  • July 31, 2015: $1.6 million
  • July 31, 2016: $2.1 million
  • July 31, 2017: $2.25 million
  • July 31, 2018: $2.55 million
  • July 31, 2019: $2.6 million
  • July 31, 2020: $2.6 million
  • July 31: 2021: $2.6 million

That’s a lot of dinero. With Cal giving his most promising remarks yet about retiring at UK yesterday to Seth Greenberg, July 31st might become his favorite day of the year.

    As much as I agree that Cal is like a young Vito Corleone, I think you meant “dinero” haha
