It remains to be seen whether or not Scott Padgett will be part of John Calipari's first staff at the University of Kentucky.
Reportedly, Padgett is in the mix to serve on Calipari's staff, giving the Kentucky coach a familiar insider within the program.
Padgett played at Kentucky from (1994-99) and played on the school's national championship team in 1998. He also played in the NBA with the Utah Jazz, the Houston Rockets, New Jersey Nets and the Memphis Grizzlies.
Padgett attended Calipari's press conference on April 1 and offered his insights on the Cats' top boss.
What kind of change do you think Calipari will bring to Kentucky?
"Obviously the style of play is going to change from Day 1. The demeanor is going to change, and I think the attitude and confidence level will change. When you bring in a guy like John Calipari, you have confidence in him because he has the track record and the background to know he's going to steer you in the right direction."
