Update: Wanted to repost and remind everyone that the FOX Sports South special "In My Own Words: John Calipari" will be airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. I had the privilege of watching the the 60-minute show Monday, and I can 100 percent tell you that you won't want to miss it. By far the most in-depth television interview Calipari has done to date. You'll hear some stuff you have never heard before.
FOX Sports South will be debuting "In My Own Words: John Calipari," a 60-minute interview special spotlighting the UK men's basketball coach, one of the all-time winningest coaches in NCAA basketball history, early next week.
The show will debut on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on FOX Sport South with additional airings on Wednesday at 3 p.m., Dec. 28 at 9 p.m. and Dec. 29 at 9 p.m. (southern Alabama, Georgia , North Carolina and South Carolina) and 11 p.m. (Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and northern Alabama).
The show will profile the story of how Calipari got to Kentucky and what he sees for the future, in his own words. Calipari discusses his upbringing in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia and how he got into coaching. Calipari explains his love of coaching and the family aspect he has tried to incorporate everywhere he's coached, especially at Kentucky, as well as the legacy he'd like to leave, not only at Kentucky but on the game of basketball.
