Current Memphis coach Josh Pastner says everything was ‘above board’ when Cal was head coach at Memphis. This is in reference to a pay-for-play accusation by a former player’s guardian. Pastner worked with Calipari as assistant coach.
“Everything while he was here was above board,” says current Memphis Tigers coach Josh Pastner in reference to former Memphis coach John Calipari. The former Memphis coach has been accused of a pay-for-play arrangement with the uncle of former player Pierre Henderson-Niles.
“I think he gets a bad rap and that’s not fair,” says Pastner, who worked one season with Calipari in Memphis as an assistant coach.
