Jim Calhoun is leaving Connecticut the same way he coached it to three national titles – on his terms. The 70-year-old Hall of Famer scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. yesterday to announce his retirement. .Assistant coach Kevin Ollie, who played for Calhoun and was his hand-picked successor, will be introduced as the Huskies’ new coach. The person familiar with the deal said Ollie will receive a one-year contract.
I’m not a huge Calhoun fan. I think he was bending and breaking rules left and right, which to me says that the sh#t may continue to hit the fan for UCONN after Calhoun leaves. Regardless, we have to give credit where credit is due. Calhoun did a terrific job with UCONN in his time. We’re going to give him some respect with a nice compilation of quality videos from tenure..
Hit the jump to see some of Calhoun’s classic moments..
