Should John Calipari Leave College Basketball To Coach In The NBA Again?

Coach Calapari has seen great success in his collegiate coaching career, but the one blemish on his nearly flawless resume is his coaching stint in the NBA.
At the moment, Coach Cal has one of the best coaching gigs in basketball, as he is the head coach at the University of Kentucky. With that being said, a pretty plush gig has opened up, as the Brooklyn Nets just fired their head coach this week.
Sources say that if John Calipari were ever going to leave Lexington, it would take certain historic conditions. He would require total control as coach and team president as well as an astronomical guaranteed cash figure, they said.
Wes Wesley, Calipari's coaching agent, has told plenty in power across the NBA that it would take an offer of no less than "$120 million guaranteed" to get Calipari's interest. His biggest selling point, (on top of his coaching skill) is the top tier NBA talent that he coached at Kentucky that would become free agents in the next couple of years. He could easily court a handful of those guys to play for him at Brooklyn.

@DannyMoses Yeah....I feel like basketball turns into a very different game between the NCAA and the NBA.
nba not nfl
No stay in college history says that college coaches for the most part don't fair well in professionals leagues and he had his time in nfl and didn't do to hot maybe not the best scenario for him but if he belonged he would've found a way in my opinion
Nah...and especially not back with the Nets. It's just not worth it for him and even if he gets the money he wants, I don't know if he can lead the Nets the way the Nets organization wants him to.
I don't think he should. Honestly, he's way better as a college coach and he might not have the same great position available immediately if he burns out of the pros again.
