Calipari doing fine recovering from hip surgery

LEXINGTON, KY. - (WKYT) UK coach John Calipari says he is doing fine recovering from hip surgery on May 2. Calipari updated fans sending out a message on twitter and with an article on his website.

Calipari said he is in Florida and he's humbled by the support hes received. The 55 year old coach said he did some walking yesterday and the physical therapist reminded him he can't skip any steps.

That hit home with Calipari, who has coached a young basketball team every season hes been at Kentucky. "It reminded me about what we have to do every year with a young team and what we - even with eight scholarship players returning - will again have to do this upcoming season. It will be no different than the last five years. It will be a process."
