Coach John Calipari's first stop Monday morning was Memorial Coliseum to accept what he calls his "dream job."

But the new UK Basketball Coach then headed to Memphis for a press conference there.

It was an emotional press conference at his Memphis home, even causing him to walk out for a few minutes to collect his thoughts.

The main point he tried to drive home was how difficult it will be to leave Memphis after 9 years.

But again at his Memphis home, he told a group of reporters that he just couldn't turn the Kentucky job down.
