John Calipari, Kentucky’s head coach, has agreed to sign a new long-term deal with the program, ensuring that he retires as a Wildcat. The contract is a 10-year long deal and offers Calipari the option of staying on as a “paid ambassador” when he retires. This year marks the head coach’s 10th season with Kentucky and the deal squashes any previous rumors of Calipari possibly making a move to the NBA. Fans can also be pleased that Calipari turned down a deal from UCLA‘s program, offering him a 6 year, $48 million contract.
