* For a list of assistant coaches and managers, please refer to the following page
** Men's basketball at Kentucky began when Physical Education director W.W.H. Mustaine called together a group of students and instructed them to take up a collection to buy a ball and begin playing. Although credited with officially starting the program, Mustaine never actually coached the team at any time.
