Kentucky's John Calipari and Kansas' Bill Self told ESPN on Monday that it'd be extremely difficult for either to leave their current high-profile college jobs for an NBA opening, and both added that they haven't been contacted during this latest coaching carousel.

"They haven't talked to me about a coaching position,'' Self said on ESPNU's College Basketball podcast. "There's nothing going on and that doesn't bother me one bit.

"I think I've got a better situation than a lot of the franchises in the league. People may think that's hard to believe, but they haven't been here or know what's gone on here. Very content where I am."

Self has been at Kansas since 2003, winning the national title in 2008.

Multiple media reports have linked Florida's Billy Donovan, Iowa State's Fred Hoiberg, Michigan State's Tom Izzo and UConn's Kevin Ollie to various NBA openings over the past month.

Donovan has commented recently at SEC meetings that he had been in contact with NBA teams and didn't want to guarantee a return to Florida in large part because he didn't want to lie if something did occur.

Ollie signed a five-year contract last month with the Huskies, doubling his salary to $2.8 million ($3 million with incentives) after winning the national title in April.

Izzo said on the ESPNU podcast last month that he would be back at Michigan State.

Calipari was coach of the then-New Jersey Nets from 1996-97 to 1998-99 after taking UMass to the Final Four in '96. He also served as an assistant with the Sixers in 1999-2000 before going to Memphis and then arriving at Kentucky in 2009.

The Wildcats won the national title in 2012, went to the Final Four in 2011 and '14 and the Elite Eight in 2010, and have missed the NCAA tournament only once -- in 2013.
