Kentucky has chosen its next men’s basketball coach. Now tell us: Do you agree?

With the exit of longtime University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari to Arkansas, social media has churned through the names of many potential replacements.

On Thursday evening it was reported that BYU head coach and former Kentucky player Mark Pope would be the next head coach of the Wildcats. No official announcement has been made but the report was confirmed by multiple media outlets at the local and national level.

Billy Donovan, Bruce Pearl and Todd Golden were just a few of the possibilities as of late Thursday, after loads of speculation over Scott Drew was squashed when he announced he would remain at Baylor. UConn’s Dan Hurley has also publicly commented, confirming he would not be heading to Kentucky.

While the Herald-Leader tracks down and verifies the latest news about the next Wildcats coach, we’d like to hear from the fans: Who would you like to see take the role?

You can tell us using the polling tool below — but before you get too excited, know this is just for fun. There’s nothing scientific about it (and Mitch Barnhart probably has his own ideas about a hire). Readers can vote as many times as they’d like.

Baylor’s Scott Drew will not be the next Kentucky basketball coach. UK’s search continues.

Billy Donovan might be interested in the Kentucky basketball job. But there’s a problem.

John Calipari officially named new Arkansas coach. Here are the details of his contract.
