LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -The University of Memphis has given Kentucky permission to speak to coach John Calipari about the Wildcats' head coaching position.
Athletic director R.C. Johnson said in a statement Monday that Calipari could meet with Kentucky representatives, but stressed Memphis will do whatever it can to retain the coach.
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 already met with Calipari and were prepared to offer him the job.
The school fired Billy Gillispie after two seasons on Friday.
