John Calipari reportedly called the Knicks about the head presidency job.
Ian Begley of ESPN reported this tonight:
Kentucky head coach John Calipari reached out to Knicks through intermediaries to express interest in the Knicks presidency, per ESPN league sources. The Knicks do not have interest in Calipari at the moment, per league sources. Presumably, Calipari would want to coach as well if he took over as president. The Knicks parted ways with president Phil Jackson earlier this week. Current GM Steve Mills is handling the club’s day-to-day operations and is expected to lead them through free agency.
Presumably, Calipari would want to coach as well if he took over as president,” Begley writes.
Begley also reports that the Knicks don’t the have interest in Calipari at this time.
It’d be crazy to think John Calipari would leave Kentucky in the middle of the summer with one of his best recruiting classes looming for next season.
Granted I do think that day will come, where he will leave Kentucky in some way shape or form. I don’t think that year is this year though.
Cal is also out of the country right now coaching Team USA U-19.
