CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari will finish his coaching career in Lexington.
A UK spokesperson confirmed that the school has agreed to terms on a long-term contract with Calipari to finish his career at Kentucky.
This comes on the same day Seth Davis of The Athletic reported UCLA offered Calipari a contract worth 6 years and $48 million.
Calipari spoke about the deal on his radio show in Lexington saying, "It has nothing to do with the other stuff. People call every year. They presented it to me and I appreciate it.”
The terms of Calipari’s new deal have not been disclosed.
Calipari’s Wildcats lost a heartbreaking Elite Eight game to SEC rival Auburn on Sunday to close out their season with a 30-7 record.
