He didn’t mention the rumored new gig as head coach at the University of Arkansas, but said several opportunities presented themselves.

Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart tweeted a thank you to Coach Cal for his contributions to the university “on and off the court.” He also said they are “working diligently to hire a proven, highly dedicated coach who embraces the importance of this program to our fans and the state of Kentucky.”
