Kentucky coach John Calipari visits Steelers camp, Bud Dupree
Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari made his annual trip to Steelers training camp on Wednesday and got to meet with a fellow Wildcat.
Calipari, originally from Moon Township, Pa. still bleeds black and gold, and tries to make it to the team's facility every summer. He loves getting to meet with Mike Tomlin and quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner, who he knows from their time together at Memphis. Of course, Calipari's visit wouldn't be complete if he didn't get to see first-round pick Bud Dupree in Steelers colors.
“He has the talent, but it’s more than that at this level," said Calipari of the former Kentucky edge rusher via Steelers.com. "You have to have the mindset, the killer, the training. It’s hard for young guys but I have a lot of confidence in him. He is a terrific player."
Cornerback and Lousiville alum William Gay couldn't resist a photo op with his alma mater's in-state rival, flashing an 'L' sign for good measure.
