Calipari turns down Cavaliers
CINCINNATI (WKRC) --Seems as if the Cleveland Cavaliers wanted John Calipari bad... 80-million dollars bad.
The Cavaliers reportedly offered Calipari 10 years/$80 million to be coach and president. Cavs owner Dan Gilbert had Calipari's relationship with LeBron James in mind, and hoped he'd be the ticket to getting James back in his hometown.
While Gilbert's hopes are crushed, the Cats can look forward to another 7-years with Calipari. He accepted a 53-million dollar extension last week.
