Could Josh Pastner join Kentucky’s staff next season?

Pastner was originally coming with Calipari to Kentucky before getting the Memphis job.

Some teams’ 2022-23 seasons have already come to an end after losing in various conference tournaments.

That means coaches and teams are going to be parting ways, and we are already seeing spots open up.

However, one coach looking for a new landing spot could be an interesting one for BBN to keep an eye on.

On Friday, Jeff Borzello reported that Georgia Tech was parting ways with Josh Pastner after the Yellow Jackets finished the season with a 15-18 overall record.

After the news broke, Kyle Tucker of The Athletic noted that he could easily see Pastner joining Calipari’s staff at Kentucky next season.

Pastner was with Calipari at Memphis for the 2008-09 season and was planning to come with Calipari to Kentucky until Memphis offered him the head coaching job.

Tucker added that Pastner’s signature is actually on Calipari’s first Kentucky contract as the witness.

It would be interesting to see who’s spot Pastner would be taking if he joins the staff, but it would be a nice addition for Calipari to make heading into next season.
