Memphis spokesman Lamar Chance said Kentucky had not officially asked for permission to talk to Calipari, who just finished his ninth season with the Tigers. Calipari did not immediately return a text message from The Associated Press, and several Memphis players did not respond to e-mail messages left by the AP.
Kentucky spokesman DeWayne Peevy would not confirm or deny an ESPN report that Wildcats officials had met with Calipari and were prepared to offer him the job.
Kentucky athletic director Mitch Barnhart did not respond to a request for comment. The school fired Billy Gillispie after two seasons on Friday.
