John Calipari

Calipari had Final Four appearances vacated on two separate occasions - for two different schools, making him the only coach in NCAA history to accomplish such a feat. The NCAA wiped away his 1996 trip to the Final Four with UMass when it was revealed that standout Marcus Camby allegedly took money from an agent and again in 2007-08, this time at Memphis, for participating with an unnamed, ineligible player that is presumed to be Derrick Rose. Calipari left the schools for other coaching jobs before NCAA findings in both instances, also making him a strong candidate for the Escape Artist Hall of Fame.
