NCAA Basketball: Championship Game-Kentucky Press Conference

The numbers don’t mean anything, but the new contract confirms that John Calipari believes he has the best job in college basketball.  Matt Jones is reporting that Calipari has signed a new seven-year deal with Kentucky.

Kentucky Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart was thrilled with the signing. 

“We feel like we have one of the premier coaches in college basketball and he certainly needs to be rewarded and recognized for all the things he has accomplished,” Barnhart said. “It has long been our goal over the last three to five years that Cal enjoy this as his final stop in coaching and that he has an opportunity to finish his career at the University of Kentucky and hopefully set standards and win championships that will be remembered for many, many years to come.”
