John Calipari announces he's writing another book

By Matt Norlander | Staff Writer

Successful coaches write books. It's just what happens. Win some games, preferably a championship or two, and get a publisher to plunk down for an easy best-seller. Do a search on Amazon and you'll scroll for the better part of an hour.

Yet, surprisingly, Kentucky coach John Calipari -- who's short on time, but certainly not cash -- has yet to get this thoughts down on the page regarding Kentucky basketball. But that's changing. Calipari announced on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon that he's decided to write a book. The title is Players First: Success from the Inside Out.

He explained the decision.

Calipari also said the release of this book should come in 2014. An excerpt from the tome is already up, as is the option to pre-order. And just so we're clear, this will be the fourth book Calipari has attached his name to.

Regardless of content or page number, it will sell many, many, many copies. As a reminder, John Calipari is the head coach at the University of Kentucky, where college basketball is kind of one of those things the locals care about.
