Calipari Says Memphis Program Ready to Sustain Itself

The Basketball future at the University of Memphis is as bright as it's ever been.

But Tigers basketball Coach John Calipari says he doesn't take the credit.

As we told you earlier in this newscast, Calipari finally signed a re-worked contract that will keep him on the Sidelines in Memphis through 20-10 - 20-11.

Coach Cal says it's the players, the Boosters and the Administration which makes this program go.

He says Memphis is now poised for future success, but he's just one guy in the process. Calipari says the main thing he does is get people together, tells them here's the goal..now let's go reach it.

Calipari handed out awards to Middle School athletes at the YES Foundation Banquet Thursday night.

Youth Education through Sports is a program he started to help young athletes strive for success in the classroom, as well as on the field or the court.
