Kentucky head coach John Calipari to appear on The Colbert Report


Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball coach John Calipari will continue his whirlwind book tour on “The Colbert Report” on Wednesday’s April 23rd episode on Comedy Central.

Calipari’s book “Players First: Coaching from the Inside Out” has been in the news on recent days after Kentucky lost in the NCAA Championship Game to the Connecticut Huskies and touches on a number of topics, including NCAA reform and player development.

I’m sure Stephen Colbert will have some fun interviewing Calipari after he compared the NCAA to the Soviet Union before admitting that it wasn’t the best choice of words. Other topics sure to come up during his appearance on the Report include the one-and-done era of college basketball and if he’ll make a return to the NBA.

The Colbert Report airs at 11:30 p.m. ET Monday-Thursday on Comedy Central.
