Calipari On Dominican Republic

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari says he has
not been contacted about the possibility of coaching the Dominican
Republic's national basketball team.
Calipari said Tuesday that he first heard the rumor when his
daughter read about it on the Internet and asked him if it were
true.
Though Calipari said it would be "an honor" to coach for an
international team, he's not sure he has the time to devote to the
position because of the way it would cut into his recruiting time.
Calipari's comments came a day after Louisville coach Rick
Pitino agreed to coach the Puerto Rico national team next summer.
