Kentucky Wildcats Men’s Basketball coach John Calipari met with the media via zoom Tuesday to discuss his partnership with the McLendon Foundation to Help Launch McLendon Minority Leadership Initiative.
“This coach-driven initiative will provide minorities a jump-start to their careers through practical experiences, opportunities to build their network, and instilling the values of John McLendon: Integrity, Education, Leadership, and Mentorship. Participants in the initiative will be known as MLI Future Leaders,” a press release from UK reads.
“The McLendon Foundation will be assisting in the solicitation of collegiate coaches, administrators, and corporations to build this program and provide opportunities within athletics departments at all levels, with the ultimate goal of expanding and enhancing the pipeline for minorities interested in pursuing careers in athletics administration.”
