Rumors of Kentucky's Offer to Calipari

There are a lot of internet rumors floating around now that Calipari to Kentucky is essentially a done deal and we could know as early as 4:00 today. The word is Kentucky offered Calipari $6 million per year to take the reigns of the winningest program in NCAA history. There are a number of reports as well that with Calipari could come top ranked recruits John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins. If Kentucky can land Calipari and these recruits as well as retain Patrick Patterson, Daniel Orton and Jodie Meeks the Wildcat's could be scary good next year. Stay tuned.

3:54 p.m. is reporting that the John Calipari era is over at Memphis and he will take over as the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats.


This story gets a little stanger by the minute. Rivals now have dropped the story that indicated Calipari is gone and word is he is currently meeting with Memphis boosters who are matching the Kentucky offer. This could get very interesting. If the University of Kentucky cannot pull this off with all of the speculation they will struggle to find a viable candidate.
