Well, the Mike Francesa/John Calipari story escalated quickly, didn’t it? If you missed it this morning, Cal appeared on Francesa’s show yesterday and afterwards, called in to defend himself when Francesa said he wasn’t a good X’s and O’s coach. Francesa hung up on him and the audio of the incident has since gone viral.
Turns out there’s another part to the story. This morning, Doug Gottlieb told WFAN’s “Boomer & Carlton” that Francesa threatened his producer when the producer tried to get Calipari on Gottlieb’s show yesterday. Francesa and Gottlieb are both members of the CBS Sports Radio family and tape their shows in the same building, but Francesa refused to share Calipari, telling Gottlieb’s producer “Don’t ever, ever ask for one of my guests that I send my driver to go pick up.”
Man, it’s been a bad day for Francesa, hasn’t it? Simmer down boys, plenty of Calipari to go around.
