New Kentucky assistant coach John Robic knows John Calipari well after coaching under him at both Massachusetts and Memphis. Robic also has been a head coach himself and knows the transition for both players and coaches when a coaching change is made.
Still, he says the goal at Kentucky is to make big changes in the program as soon as possible.
‘That is the goal. Our goal at some point is to try and win a national championship. We were close at Memphis. I just think you have everything in place here for that to happen. Whether it does or not or when, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know. But it is a great goal to have knowing you have a chance to do that. There are a lot of places out there that your goals are different Ã¢â‚¬â€ just win your conference championship or just get into the NCAA Tournament. Our goal here is to try and win it all. That started when he took the job.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Can we win this year? We donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know, but you have to believe it. These fans here definitely believe that. It is a different animal, a different atmosphere. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the top of the food chain right here.Ã¢â‚¬Â
