John Calipari has been changing things around the program following one of, if not the worst season in program history for the Kentucky Wildcats.

Those changes began with the type of players he was bringing in. Instead of long athletic player, he has targeted more skilled players that might not be as athletic, but they can shoot the lights out.

However, the changes are also coming to the coaching staff, as Orlando Antigua is reportedly set to become back and rejoin Calipari’s staff.

There has been a ton of speculation that this reunion could happen this offseason ever since the 2020-21 season ended, but it finally appears to be a reality.

Antigua was part of Calipari’s staff at Kentucky from 2009-2014 before taking the head-coaching job at South Florida, where he remained until 2017.

Since the 2017 season, Antigua has been an assistant coach at Illinois and is now reportedly making his return to Lexington.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the coaching changes:
