John Calipari: No Interest in New Orleans Pelicans Job
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — John Calipari says he's not interested in the New Orleans Pelicans' coaching job and is happy at Kentucky.
The Pelicans fired Monty Williams a week ago and the team's NBA roster features former Kentucky star Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans, who played for Calipari at Memphis.
A person close to the situation said last week that Calipari and Kentucky are negotiating a one-year contract extension through 2022 that would pay him $54 million over seven years.
