Two massive additions for John Calipari!

UK Athletics

The Kentucky Wildcats have finally landed Orlando Antigua and Ron “Chin” Coleman as they are making the move from Illinois to Lexington to join John Calipari’s staff.

Obviously, we know Antigua who was on Calipari’s staff when he first arrived back in Lexington and was a massive part of the success, we saw in the first half of the Cal era.

Since Antigua left in 2014, the Cats went to one more Final Four the following season with a roster full of guys Antigua helped recruit and develop. Since then, the Cats haven’t been back to the Final Four and continue to miss out of the elite talent in recruiting. Hopefully, the addition of Antigua as well as Colman will change that.

Coleman has been on the Illinois staff since 2017 and mostly worked with the guards as he was crucial to the development of All-American Ayo Dosunmu who was named 2021 Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year after averaging 20 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 5.3 assists last season.

The addition of both Antigua and Coleman is massive for the Kentucky basketball program going forward.
