John Calipari left Kentucky to join Arkansas on a five-year, $38.5 million contract with bonuses that could increase the amount to seven years and almost $60 million. 

The new partnership will include an NIL fund worth “at least” $5-7 million.

Sources tell The Athletic that Calipari still regrets turning down the UCLA job in 2019. Kentucky kept Calipari on a 10-year, $86 million deal that UCLA couldn't match.

Arkansas hasn't reached the Final Four since 1995.
