Rod Strickland - The last time we checked in on Strickland, he was working for Kentucky as a special assistant, and had just been arrested for yet another DUI. This time around, things are much the same, except this time, the arrest was for driving on a suspended license. Strickland disputed the charge as being an administrative error. Nevertheless, regardless of that, he still works at Kentucky.

Rod Strickland - Last time we checked in on Rod Strickland, he had just finished his first season as an assistant coach with Kentucky, and had just been arrested for DUI for (at least) the fourth time. One year on, and John Calipari decided to penalise Rod by making him a special assistant to the head coach instead. That'll teach him.

- Rod Strickland
Strickland last played in 2005, when he spent a fortnight with the Houston Rockets. He later became the director of basketball operations at the University of Memphis, and when John Calipari moved to Kentucky, so did Rod, also getting a change of job title and becoming an assistant coach instead. However, Strickland's most headline making move was when he was arrested earlier this month for driving under the influence, his fourth such arrest in his career. It appears that Strickland either doesn't know or doesn't care about the dangers of drinking and driving. Everyone makes mistakes, but if you make the same "mistake" four times, you're not trying to learn from it.
