Calipari contract extension in the works
University of Kentucky Atheletic Director Mitch Barnhart took to twitter today to assure Kentucky fans that he had no interest in the now vacant Tennessee AD job. While addressing his future at Kentucky, he also discussed the status of John Calipari's contract.
@UKMitchBarhart: "We are working on an extension with Cal to ensure that he has a long tenure at Kentucky"
@UKMitchBarnhart: "Cal and I are the same age and share some of the same thoughts on our careers, and I'd like to align his contract with my current 8-yr deal."
@UKMitchBarnhart: "Once we get a finalized contract, we'll make a formal announcement."
Barnhart didn't mention when the contract would be complete, but there have been assumptions that it could be by the end of the month, before Lee Todd retires.
