UK Coach John Calipari Had No Idea Rick Pitino Was Fired

According to Al Weaver, political reporter for the DC Examiner, John Calipari had no idea his old friend Rick Pitino was fired earlier this morning. First off, I don’t believe that for a second. Every college basketball coach knows what is going down with the FBI investigation into NCAA Basketball. Also, college basketball coaching has long been a fraternity where news passes through the masses quick. This was Calipari’s best attempt at ignoring the question and ignoring making an on-the-record comment. Who knows? Maybe Calipari’s name or school will show up in the FBI investigation.
