LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Kentucky coach John Calipari will reveal some of the philosophy behind his championship program in a book he's writing for release next year.

Calipari's tome is titled, Players First: Success From The Inside Out, co-written with New York Times contributing writer and author Michael Sokolove. The coach said Tuesday via Twitter that the book will give him "a chance to go in-depth about how we do things at Kentucky and why we do what we do."

After rebuffing previous offers to write a book on how he has built the Wildcats' program, Calipari tweeted that "this one kind of hit home."

The Penguin Press is publishing Players First and has an excerpt available on its web site (http://thepenguinpress.com ).

It will be Calipari's fourth book and first since 2010.
