Head coach John Calipari has agreed to a lifetime contract with Kentucky after interest from UCLA. Per Bleacher Report...
quote:

John Calipari was offered a six-year, $48 million deal from UCLA, The Athletic's Seth Davis reported on Monday. The two sides were in extensive contact before Calipari told UCLA last week that he was not interested in leaving Kentucky.

Calipari is currently the highest-paid basketball coach in the country and is making $9.2 million this year, according to USA Today. Kentucky allowed UCLA to speak with Calipari, but once the school learned the offer's legitimacy, it offered Calipari an extension that would include a 10-year term as a coach, Davis reported.

Theoretically, this would prevent Kentucky from ever going on probation since EVERY college Calipari has coached has been put on probation AFTER he left.

Why do all these coaches in Kentucky look like wiseguys from a Martin Scorsese movie.

Because they are. Well, except for Joe B. Hall.
