An open letter to University of Kentucky President Lee T. Todd Jr.:
Re: The recent hiring by UK of a head men’s basketball coach whose former program now stands alleged of major NCAA violations.
Well that didn’t take long, did it Dr. Todd?
Exactly 56 days after you introduced John Calipari as Kentucky coach on April Fool’s Day, it became public that the NCAA is charging Cal’s former school, Memphis, with major violations including academic fraud.
Now you, Dr. Todd, as president of one of the most penalized schools in NCAA history, have hired a coach who may soon have Final Four trips from two different schools “vacated” due to rules infractions on his watch.
