Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari wants the school to have a new practice facility. 

Per Kyle Tucker of The Athletic, the longtime Wildcats head coach is planning to raise funds to make it happen. Calipari wants it to be a creative facility that includes sports science and a museum that honors the school's basketball history.

This comes after the roof on the Joe Craft Center, Kentucky's current practice facility, started leaking when a storm came through a few days ago. Calipari was forced to end his practice early due to it.

A new facility would likely cost millions of dollars, though Calipari is probably not concerned about that. 

He wants to have the best state-of-the-art facility and looks determined to make it happen. 

We'll have to see if a plan for one is approved by the University.
