Forbes.com recently ranked the "Most Overpaid Coaches In College Basketball" and put John Calipari at the top of the list. Forbes says, "Calipari is a top 12 coach, but a salary that leads all of college basketball--ahead of Roy Williams, Jim Calhoun and Rick Pitino, among others--is out of whack." What the website fails to mention is all of the great things Coach Cal has done for the community, the university, and the entire state. Plus, Calipari hasn't even coached two full seasons under his current contract. How 'bout we wait a little while before deciding on what kind of money he actually deserves from the University of Kentucky. Also on the list as the second most overpaid coach in basketball is another familiar name to Kentucky fans - Travis Ford at Oklahoma State. Go Cats.
