In Kentucky basketball news, Coach John Calipari has officially stepped down as the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats, stating that he feels the program needs another voice. Calipari leaves behind a remarkable legacy after spending 15 seasons at UK, where he compiled a record of 410-122. During his tenure, the Wildcats claimed six SEC regular-season championships and six SEC Tournament championships, with four Final Four appearances and one National Championship in 2012. Calipari’s overall coaching record stands at an impressive 855-262. This season, the Wildcats finished with a record of 23-10 overall and 13-5 in the SEC. Calipari also coached 35 Kentucky players who earned All-SEC first or second team selections. A nationwide search is currently underway for a new coach at Kentucky.
