UK coach Billy Gillispie spoke to reporters for more than 45 minutes on Thursday morning.
Gillispie addressed a variety of topics, including a formal contract with the university. Gillispie also spoke about his team's upcoming schedule and how the school might best honor Mr. Wildcat, Bill Keightley.
The coach announced that forward Mark Coury has asked for and been granted a release to pursue a scholarship at another school. Gillispie said Coury was free to return if the player is unable to land a scholarship.
