Kentucky plans to meet with Baylor’s Scott Drew about its head coaching vacancy “in the near future,” CBS Sports reported Wednesday.

The Wildcats are searching for a new coach for the first time since 2009, with John Calipari officially taking the reins at Arkansas on Wednesday.

Drew, 53, led Baylor to a national championship in 2020-21 and has guided the Bears to the NCAA Tournament 12 times in his 21 seasons with the program in Waco, Texas.

Drew’s overall record at Baylor is 446-244, including a 24-11 finish in 2023-24. The third-seeded Bears fell to No. 6 seed Clemson in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

He also guided Baylor to a NIT championship in 2013 and was the Big 12 Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons in 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22.

Drew started his coaching career with one season at Valparaiso in 2002-03, finishing 20-11 after succeeding his father, Homer Drew.
