John Calipari denies he took a shot at Mike Krzyzewski

Matt Norlander of CBS Sports reports that while on a Memphis radio show this morning, UK coach John Calipari made a comment that could easily be construed as a shot at Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Norlander reports that Cal said:

“Start a clean slate,” Calipari said. “Police each other, give it to league commissioners and schools to deal with. If it goes beyond that, there’s a board there that’s ready to deal with it. … You’ve got coaches being fired over phone calls and text messages. Some. Other guys can make phone calls and it’s not that big a deal.”

Duke recently announced it was looking into whether Krzyzewski made an impermissable phone call to Nashville recruit Alex Poythress, who is also being recruited by Kentucky.

Minutes ago, Calipari tweeted:

My comments on the radio this morning had nothing to do w/ Mike Krzyzewski. He has actually been very helpful to me in preparing my DR team.
