John Calipari challenges his haters after signing lifetime deal at Kentucky: 'Why are you mad?'
Kentucky did what it had to in order to keep John Calipari in Lexington this offseason by offering the Wildcat coach a “lifetime” deal that includes the perks of an administrative job once his coaching career comes to an end.
The unprecedented contract given to Calipari hasn’t been without some detractors, however, and during a recent appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up” show, the Kentucky coach called out those hating on his good fortune.
“There are people that, I don’t know if it’s their opinion or their hope, but they get mad and it’s like, ‘Why are you mad? What’s this make you mad about?'” Calipari said. “Our fans are happy, our administration is happy, I’m happy. I guess that’s all it’s about.”
