John Calipari: I have no interest in coaching the Pelicans

Kentucky head coach John Calipari has quickly shut down a rumor that he is interested in coaching the New Orleans Pelicans.

John Reid of NOLA.com published an article this afternoon stating that Calipari has "made it known" to Pelicans' officials that he's interested in the job.

Calipari quick shot that rumor down via social media and a brief statement that was sent out by UK:

“Even though Anthony and Tyreke are in New Orleans, I have no interest in coaching the Pelicans or any other coaching position. I have a great job and I'm happy at Kentucky.”
