LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky coach John Calipari will reveal some of the philosophy behind his championship program in a book he's writing for release next year.
Calipari's tome is titled, Players First: Success From The Inside Out, co-written with New York Times contributing writer and author Michael Sokolove. The coach said Tuesday via Twitter that the book will give him ``a chance to go in-depth about how we do things at Kentucky and why we do what we do.''
After rebuffing previous offers to write a book on how he has built the Wildcats' program, Calipari tweeted that ``this one kind of hit home.''
The Penguin Press is publishing Players First and has an excerpt available on its web site (http://thepenguinpress.com ).
It will be Calipari's fourth book and first since 2010.
