John Calipari Reportedly Has ‘Serious Interest’ In The Coaching Job At UCLA

Kentucky head coach John Calipari, the highest paid coach in college basketball, is reportedly considering an offer from UCLA. The job was made available in December, when the Bruins decided to part ways with Steve Alford.

Via Tracy Pierson of Bruin Report Online:

‘According to various sources, the Hall of Fame coach is showing what some have described as “serious interest” in coming to Westwood.

It’s known that Calipari has always liked the UCLA job, loving Los Angeles and the lifestyle.’

However, Calipari shot down the report on Wednesday night, when he tweeted this out.

Calipari is a three-time Naismith College Coach of the Year, and he’s led the Wildcats to four Final Four appearances, including a National Championship win in 2012.
