The weekend clinic ends on Sept. 16 at 10:45 a.m. (CT).

Among the featured speakers scheduled to speak are Memphis coach John Calipari, Texas Tech coach Bobby Knight, Pittsburgh coach Jamie Dixon, Pepperdine coach Vance Walberg, Arkansas coach John Pelphrey, USF coach Stan Heath, Dallas Mavericks assistant Del Harris and Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown.

There are two weekend clinic packages at $200 (shared room; two double beds; maximum of three coaches per room) and $270 (single occupancy only; one double bed). The cost to attend the clinic with no hotel stay is $150. If coaches register on the day of the clinic (Sept. 14), the fee is $300.
