At 2:00 pm this afternoon, UConn’s Men’s Head basketball coach Jim Calhoun is expected to retire. The 70 year old Calhoun coached at UConn for 26 years, winning 876 games, 4 Final Fours, and 3 NCAA Championships.
Calhoun was without a doubt one of the greatest basketball coaches the NCAA has ever seen. That doesn’t mean I have to get all misty-eyed over it.
Let’s a call Jim Calhoun what he really was: A fantastic basketball coach and bad person.
Sorry guys, I’m just calling it as I see it.
Don’t believe me? Why don’t you go ask Nate Miles then.
Calhoun pushed the limits of NCAA rules and had no problem sacrificing a young man or two in order to gain advantage. He had wins taken away, was suspended and currently leaves his successor a team that’s ineligible to play in the NCAA tournament due to the awful academic state of the UConn Men’s team.
Good luck to UConn assistant Kevin Ollie who now has the unenviable task of replacing a coaching legend and cleaning up his unethical mess.
