Coach Cal almost went pro, according to Yahoo Sports

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- After a seven-year, $52 million agreement, it looks like Coach Cal will be staying at Kentucky.

But he almost went pro.

Yahoo Sports is reporting John Calipari was in talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The alleged contract would have lasted seven years, and been worth more than $60 million.

Sources say when the Harrison twins -- Andrew and Aaron -- announced they were returning to UK as sophomores, it became more difficult to lure Calipari out of his job.
