The same year (1996) Calipari won Naismith Coach of the Year, University of Massachusetts's first ever Final Four appearance was vacated when it was discovered that Marcus Camby had accepted $28,000 and gifts from sports agents. John moved on to coach the New Jersey and where he was fined for verbal attacks on sports reporter Dan Garcia and eventually fired after a losing season. The coach saw accolades and wins when he went on to coach at the University of Memphis, but had his best season (2008) vacated after scandal involving Derrick Rose broke. No sweat. Calipari signed an 8-year, $31.65 million contract with the University of Kentucky and this season, they're ranked #1. King.
