Calipari ‘not interested’



LEXINGTON

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.

Calipari said in a statement issued Tuesday by the school that, “Even though Anthony and Tyreke are in New Orleans, I have no interest in coaching the Pelicans or any other coaching position.”

A person close to the situation said Calipari and Kentucky are negotiating a one-year contract extension through 2022 that would pay him $54 million over seven years. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no details of the talks have been publicly released.
