Calipari thrown for loss on home sale

Everything John Calipari has touched since his arrival in Kentucky seemingly has turned to gold, but even the new UK basketball coach was unable to turn a profit in a recesssion-riddled real estate market.

According to a report in The Commercial Appeal of Memphis on Wednesday, Calipari took a $70,000 loss when he sold his Memphis home recently.

Calipari, who left Memphis for UK at the end of March, bought the five-bedroom home for $1.495 million in 2000. He sold the 6,918 square-foot home for $1.425 million, according to a warranty deed filed Wednesday.
