Jim Calhoun All Fired Up by Reporter, Salary Queries

Tony ArnoldineCorrespondent IFebruary 22, 2009

Ken Krayeske, a freelance journalist, acquired a media credential on Saturday and asked UConn coach Jim Calhoun about his salary during these tough economic times. Calhoun was not pleased.

The kid even got a shot at the "real" reporters in there.

The thing I don't get is why Calhoun is boasting and being so arrogant about his salary, and why people think it's funny. If Alex Rodriguez or some other highly paid athlete were to do that, he would be vilified.

And coach, how much of that $12 million do you give back to the kids in the form of cars and free grades?
