"I am the coach at Kentucky and will be for a long time!"
University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari has assured Big Blue Nation that they have nothing to worry about, he plans on coaching the Wildcats for a very long time.
Late last night rumors surfaced that Coach Cal was interested in the vacant President of Basketball Operations job for the New York Knicks.
According to ESPN's Ian Begley, Calipari's people reached out to the Knicks about the position, and was reportedly interested in coaching the team if he took over as president, but the Knicks weren't interested.
However, Calipari took to twitter this morning to shoot down the claims, saying no one has contacted the Knicks on his behalf.
Check out his reaction to the rumors, which he apparently found out about while in Egypt.

Even in Egypt I can’t escape the rumors. Are you kidding me?! It’s 5 in the morning here and this is what I wake up to?— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) June 30, 2017
