Kentucky will announce on Monday that John Calipari's contract has increased in value over the terms of his initial deal and been extended by two years, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Sunday.

Calipari's intial contract with UK was for eight years and nearly $32 million.

The Wildcats are 64-12 in two seasons under Calipari.

They made the Elite Eight in 2010 and the Final Four in 2011.

They'll be ranked No. 2 in the CBSSports.com preseason Top 25 (and one).

UK extends Calipari's contract by two years

Signing a 2 year extension does not keep him from leaving for another job.  Coaches' contracts are not contracts at all.  I think Cal had a long-term contract prior to him slithering off to UK.

Nice.  Two more years to build up more NCAA violations.  UK, I'm sorry about all the wins you're going to forfeit in about 7 years because your coach is dirty.

He already probably has an eye back to the NBA

he'll be with some NBA team...probbaly next year


Which is why he signed a 2 year extension that carries him through 2020. Sheesh....you use that brain much anymore? Obviously not.

  When some people dont have any thing to say THEY SHOULD JUST STAY SILENT (Stevephoenix). Everytime you hear something good about any one you should be happy for them unfortuantely there is nothing ever good about ASU so therefore you have to pull out the old "con artist, cheater, lier and runaway train reck" lines to make yourself feel better about a program that has gone no where and looking to go no where because it likes being where it is and that is no where. Schools are always looking for the best coach for all sports that they have and those that open the purse get the best those that dont need to.

  So for future reference no your facts before you speek, at least know what you are talking about and above all get a life that others around you can enjoy Mr. Sourpuss.

First, easy guys. This is news. Great news if you're a Kentucky fan, and bad news if you're a fan of pretty much any other team. Cal is 52 so that would take him up to age 60. And since he's said all along he doesn't intend to coach forever, and that he thinks ten years is about the maximum at UK for any coach that's just about right.

As for the haters we all know they're gonna hate. Nothing is going to change that. And ignorance is suppose to be bliss. God creates idiots everyday....like UL fans Tongue out But that seems to be the common prevailing theme around here for the past few years so it is what it is.

I also recall when UK was simply an afterthought in most fans minds. Occasionally someone from a rival fanbase would stop by to play poke the animal with the stick game and tell us how irrelevant Kentucky was or that we all lived in the past but other than that UK was pretty much forgotten about until Calipari was hired.

So don't educate the idiots and let them hate all they want it doesn't change the truth.

Hey Stevephoenix....you DO realize that you root for the school that has been busted by the NCAA for cheating more than any other school, right? ASU is #1 on the infractions list, whereas Kentucky hasn't committed a major violation since 1988. And, for the record, Coach Cal has NEVER been nailed with a violation. I guess you can claim that ASU is at least #1 in something, because in basketball, football, etc.....they simply suck. Baseball, yea, I'll give you that, except for the fact that the SEC is going to again win the National Title.

Now now, it isn't stevepenis' fault........ooops, stevephoenix's fault.....that he pulls for a cheap imitation of the Wildcats, and really, come college basketball season, he has no reason to even live.  You know, despite the fact that half my family live in Phoenix, it is the fact that the whole city is crawling with dumbasses like steve that make me hate it.
