Sports Illustrated Coach of the Year (2009) A-10 Coach of the Year (1993, 1994, 1996) C-USA Coach of the Year (2006, 2008, 2009) John Phelan National Coach of the Year (2009)

John Calipari (born February 10, 1959) is an American basketball coach. Since April 2009, he has been the men's head coach at the University of Kentucky.

Calipari is the former head coach of the University of Memphis, the University of Massachusetts and the NBA's New Jersey Nets. He is one of only two coaches to direct three different colleges to a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament, and the only head coach to have a Final Four appearance vacated at more than one school, though Calipari himself was not personally indicted by the NCAA while coaching UMass or Memphis. Calipari has taken three different schools to the Final Four: UMass (1996), Memphis (2008) and Kentucky (2011). Trips with UMass and Memphis have since been vacated and do not count.
