Coach Cal Says Tigers Basketball Schedule Done, Just Not Out Yet

University of Memphis Coach John Calipari says his teams' schedule is done...they're just waiting to set the dates and the TV times.

Calipari says the U of M has firm dates with Arizona, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Cincinnati, plus games in the Maui Classic which could have them playing Georgia Tech and Kentucky along with their regular dose of Conference USA teams.

Calipari also says he's ecstatic over the hiring of his former top assistant Tony Barbee to be the new head coach at UTEP.

Barbee is taking former Memphis Director Basketball Operations Milt Wagner with him to be an Assistant on the Bench.

Calipari says he has no firm time table on when to fill the positions...

He did say he's interested in talking with former Tiger players about the job, and will speak with Tony Madlock, now an assistant at Arkansas State.

Madlock played point guard for Memphis in the early '90's on Coach Larry Finch's teams which featured All-American and Future All-NBA Star Penny Hardaway.
