Brad Calipari has a new job on a coaching staff at one of the Kentucky Wildcats’ SEC rivals.
Vanderbilt Basketball announced yesterday that Brad is joining Jerry Stackhouse’s staff as Director of On-Court Player Development, the same role he held on Derek Kellogg’s staff at LIU.
“Brad is a talented, young coach who has worked hard to prepare himself for this opportunity,” Stackhouse said in a statement. “He is knowledgeable, high-energy, and a strong communicator. We are very excited about his ability to add value with our student-athletes and within our coaching staff.”
It seems like a solid move for Brad, as Stackhouse is well-regarded and viewed as one of the top young coaches in college basketball. After a rough start in his first two years at Vanderbilt, he’s led the Commodores to winning records in back-to-back seasons and had Vandy on the cusp of an NCAA Tournament appearance last season.
It'll certainly be weird seeing John Calipari’s son on the coaching staff of a rival program, but congratulations to Brad on his new position!

One of the good ones.
A pair of Missouri players think so.
Bringing back Reeves was one of the biggest wins of the offseason.
A well-known figure around UK and central Kentucky.
It’s hard to believe Bobby is back in the SEC.
He’s only 31 wins behind Don Shula.
Don’t expect Congress to pass any NIL legislation soon.
It’s a tough time for running backs in the league.
