5 head coaches Kentucky fans would dream of if John Calipari leaves

Kentucky's Round of 64 loss to Oakland felt like the end of an era, and if it truly was, then who could the Wildcats bring to Big Blue Nation as Coach Cal's successor?

It’ll be hard to pry Scott Drew away from the Baylor program, he’s a legend in Waco for delivering a national championship, especially when you consider that when he took over, the program had only been to the NCAA Tournament once since 1950. Yet, Drew gets calls for all the big jobs, and eventually one might be big enough to change his mind. 

At just 53 years old, Drew already has 465 career wins and a national title. Baylor has invested heavily in its program by building a new arena and they would do almost anything to stop him from leaving, which is a pretty good sign that he’d be a great hire. You never want the guy whose current administration would hold the door for on the way out. 

His legacy is already cemented at Baylor, but if Drew is ready for a new challenge, then Lexington Kentucky should be his next stop.
