Jim Calhoun arrived in Storrs, CT, in 1986 as a relatively unknown, albeit quite successful, coach from Northeastern University.
Since his unheralded introduction as the coach of Big East bottom-feeder UConn, Calhoun has won 10 Big East regular-season championships, seven Big East Tournament championships and three National Championships.
Calhoun's 873 career wins place him sixth all time among Division 1 coaches. Much of Calhoun's success is the result of the talent he has recruited and developed while at UConn.
Calhoun has coached 25 (soon-to-be 27 with the expected first-round selections of Jeremy Lamb and Andre Drummond in this June's draft) current and former NBA players from UConn.
