Twitter reactions to K.T. Turner joining the Wildcats

John Calipari has his new assistant coach.

After Jai Lucas left earlier this offseason to take a job with the Duke Blue Devils, the wheels have been spinning on who Coach Calipari would find to replace a rising star like Lucas.

Known as one of the best player development coaches at the college level, Turner brings over 15 years of experience to Lexington with his most recent stop being with the Oklahoma Sooners as the associate head coach. Before his time in Norman, Turner also held the same role with the Texas Longhorns and SMU Mustangs.
