Press Conference Moderator Calls Coach Cal “Rick”

After Kentucky beat Rick Pitino’s Cardinals, John Calipari began to leave the post-game press conference podium at nearly 1:30 AM Saturday.

The moderator said, "Thank you Rick."

Cal made light of the slip up calling the moderator a different name as well, and it went viral.

We spoke to the moderator, Bill Benner, Saturday afternoon. 

Benner says you have to be able to laugh at your mistakes.
