Report: Kentucky Offers Calipari Lifetime Contract

State Farm Champions Classic

Kentucky has offered John Calipari a lifetime deal to remain at the school, Seth Davis of The Athletic reports. This comes after UCLA offered Calipari a lucrative deal to coach their program. Per Davis:

UCLA offered Calipari a contract worth approximately $48 million over six years, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. The contacts between Calipari and UCLA have been more extensive than previously reported, but Calipari told UCLA last week he is not interested in leaving Kentucky.
Kentucky gave UCLA permission to speak with Calipari but did not take seriously the possibility that he would leave, partly because in the past UCLA has not committed nearly the same type of financial resources that Kentucky has for basketball. - The Athletic's Seth Davis

Kentucky was just eliminated by Auburn in the Elite Eight on Sunday.
