After being named National Coach of the Year on Sunday, winning a National Championship on Monday, Villanova head coach continued a fairly average week by talking to President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

The official White House text notes that Obama congratulated Wright on Monday's victory over North Carolina and invited the Wildcats to the White House. Jay Wright noted that Sasha and Malia were cheering for 'Nova because they went to school with Josh Hart and the dapper coach added that the call, "was cool."

No date has been set for the Wildcats' trip to visit the President.

Here's a portion of the interview shared from the White House.
