Quick, without researching it, name seven coaches that won 300 games in their first 13 years as head coaches at the NCAA Division I level. One of the most accomplished basketball coaches in collegiate history, John Calipari’s foot print can be found on courts throughout the country. While serving as head coach at UMass from 1988-1996, John led his players to five straight NCAA conference titles; he's won over 70 percent of his games as a collegiate head coach, and since taking over as head coach at the University of Memphis in 2000, he's won over 71 percent of his games. But John has an even higher winning percentage in another area of collegiate athletics -- graduating student-athletes. Since stepping foot on the Memphis campus, 12 of 15 seniors that have played for Calipari earned their bachelor's degrees. Author of Refuse to Lose, John is one of this country's most sought after sports and motivational speakers. Coach Cal puts his courtside skills to work for business teams to develop winning strategies. His lecture topics include: " Team Building ;" "Leadership Development;" "Management Strategies" and "Performance Enhancing Techniques." He was inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame in 2004.
