Kentucky's John Calipari has emerged as the focus of Arkansas' men's basketball search, sources told ESPN, in a potential blockbuster move that would shake up the SEC and college basketball landscape.

No deal is done, sources told ESPN, and there are potential obstacles in the negotiations. Calipari is the second-highest-paid coach in the country at Kentucky, earning more than $8.5 million per year. Arkansas is believed to have offered Ole Miss' Chris Beard in the neighborhood of $5 million when it pursued him following Eric Musselman's decision last week to leave for USC, sources told ESPN.
