Jim Calhoun settling into new role as mentor
...
CROMWELL - Jim Calhoun says he was in the shower at 7 a.m. last week when the phone rang.
...
The 70-year-old Calhoun retired as a coach last month, but he hasn't stepped away from UConn. Instead, he is carving out a new role at the school as a fundraiser, an advocate for UConn basketball, and a mentor to Ollie, his hand-picked successor who has never held a head coaching job at any level.
"I'm not going away," Calhoun said Monday as he appeared with Ollie at a local chamber of commerce breakfast in Cromwell. "The state of Connecticut, you've got me for life."
Calhoun said he plans to travel with the team for its season-opening game against Michigan State in Germany and for a November tournament in the Virgin Islands. But at 6-foot-5, the Hall-of-Fame coach said he also knows he casts a large shadow. He said his biggest problem will be making sure he doesn't overshadow what is now Ollie's program.
To that end, Calhoun said he won't be on the floor for UConn's traditional "First Night" celebration to open practice, and he doesn't want to attend most games.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Jim Calhoun is leaving Connecticut the same way he coached it to three national titles _ on his terms.
...
Assistant coach Kevin Ollie, who played for Calhoun and was his hand-picked successor, will be introduced as the Huskies' new coach.
...
Calhoun racked up 873 collegiate wins _ 625 of them at his beloved UConn, where he ran the men's program for 26 years and won three national titles.
Recently, though, Calhoun has struggled with health problems, including a fractured hip that required surgery and left him on crutches after a bicycle accident last month.
...
Ollie is one of more than two dozen players whom Calhoun sent to the NBA, a list that also includes Ben Gordon, Kemba Walker, Rudy Gay and Emeka Okafor.
...
Before fracturing his hip, Calhoun fought off cancer three times and missed eight games last season because of a painful spinal condition. He returned just four days after having back surgery to coach the Huskies in their regular-season finale and the postseason.
UConn finished the year 20-14, losing to Iowa State in the first-round of the NCAA tournament.
In addition to his medical leave, Calhoun served a three-game suspension at the start of the Big East season last winter for failing to maintain an atmosphere of compliance in his program with NCAA rules, an issued that dated to recruiting violations in 2008.
A native of Braintree, Mass., Calhoun played college basketball at American International in Springfield, where he was a team captain and leading scorer his junior and senior years.
After coaching in high school in Connecticut and Massachusetts, he was hired to coach Northeastern in 1972.
Calhoun spent the next 14 years at the school, transforming the team from Division II program to a mid-major power with five appearances in the NCAA tournament.
Calhoun was hired by UConn in May 1986 and won an NIT title in his second season. His teams won 10 Big East regular-season championships and seven Big East Tournament titles.
In 1999, he coached the Huskies to a 34-2 record and their first NCAA championship, a 77-74 upset over Duke.
...
Calhoun also was hospitalized in 2009 after breaking several ribs during a charity bike ride and he missed seven games in the 2009-10 season for an undisclosed stress-related medical reason.
...
Besides accusations that his staff improperly contacted recruits, gave them improper benefits and distributed free tickets to high school coaches and others, Calhoun was cited for failing to maintain an atmosphere of compliance.
The accusations led to the resignations of two assistants, and a promise from Calhoun to make things right. He told reporters that the idea of bringing closure to that issue was a "major, major factor" in his decision to come back after the 2011 championship season.

CALHOUN RETIRES AS UCONN ...

CALHOUN RETIRES AS UCONN BASKETBALL COACH
Hall of Famer won 3 National Championships
STORRS, Conn. (Sept. 13, 2012) --- Jim Calhoun, who took over a regional program at the University of Connecticut 26 years ago and built it into a three-time NCAA champion and a perennial national power, has announced his retirement as the UConn men's basketball coach.
"I always said that I would know when it was time, whenever that might be," said Calhoun, who made the official announcement Thursday afternoon at a news conference at Gampel Pavilion on UConn's Storrs campus. "The hip injury really didn't enter into the decision, except that it gave me more time to think about it and the more I thought about it, the more I became convinced that this was the right time to move on to the next phase of my life."
Under a transition agreement that runs through next spring, Calhoun, 70, will continue his association with the university as a Special Assistant to Athletic Director Warde
Manuel, providing services to the university in support of men's basketball, the Division of Athletics, the UConn Health Center, and the university at large.
"The agreement runs until March 21, 2013," Calhoun said. "Then we'll look at everything and go from there."
Upon his full retirement from the university, Calhoun will become Head Coach Emeritus. Continued...
...
"Jim has given 26 years of 100 percent effort into making UConn, and UConn basketball, and so many student-athletes into the best they could be," Manuel said. "I am proud to have worked with him, if only for a brief period of time, and I look forward to his association with us for years to come."
Manuel said that although his own tenure at UConn hasn't been very long, he has quickly learned how much Calhoun means to the university community.
"Jim is a pillar of the Division of Athletics and this university," Manuel said.
...
In May 1986, following four consecutive losing seasons, UConn hired Calhoun, who had won 248 games and made five NCAA Tournament appearances in 14 years at mid-major Northeastern. After a nine-win campaign in his first year with the Huskies, Calhoun has put together 25-straight winning seasons and made UConn one of the nation's elite college basketball programs.
His phenomenal success story at UConn includes three NCAA championships (1999, 2004, 2011), one of just five coaches in history with three or more titles. Under Calhoun, the Huskies have also made four appearances in the Final Four (2009), nine trips to the Elite Eight and captured 13 berths in the Sweet 16 among 18 trips to the NCAA Tournament. He has also taken UConn to the NIT six times, winning the NIT championship in 1988, in just his second season at the helm.
In the BIG EAST Conference, Calhoun took the UConn program from mediocrity to dominance. The Huskies have won a record seven BIG EAST Tournament championships and 10 regular-season league titles. UConn is the only league team to ever sweep the BIG EAST regular-season and tournament crowns in back-to-back seasons (1997-98, 1998-99).
"Am I going to miss coaching basketball? Of course," Calhoun said.
...
Calhoun is 311-183 in BIG EAST competition, second in all-time wins, and his 35-19 record in the BIG EAST tourney also ranks second all-time.
Nationally, the Huskies' coach has eight 30-win seasons, third all-time, and he ranks sixth all-time with 25 20-win seasons. Calhoun is fourth all-time with 49 NCAA Tournament wins (49-18). His overall national postseason record is 62-20 with four championships (3 NCAA, 1 NIT).
Calhoun's greatest legacy, however, might well be the UConn players and coaches he has developed. He has had 27 players drafted by the NBA, including 18 first-round picks, and 13 of those have been lottery picks.
...
Under Calhoun, UConn has had seven players named BIG EAST Player of the Year, six players named Most Outstanding Player of the BIG EAST Championship, seven players named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year, five named BIG EAST Rookie of the Year. He has coached 20 BIG EAST first team all-stars, 20 second-team all-stars, 20 third team all-stars and three honorable mentions.
...
"Coaching at UConn has just been phenomenal, there's no other way to describe it," Calhoun said. "I will always be grateful to the University of Connecticut. When I look back and see what we were able to accomplish here, I am extremely proud."
Born May 10, 1942, in Braintree, Mass., Calhoun is a graduate of Braintree High School and American International College in Springfield (1968). He began his coaching career at Old Lyme (Conn.) High School and continued at Westport (Mass.) High and Dedham (Mass.) High before becoming the head coach at Northeastern University in 1972. After 14 years at Northeastern, he accepted the job at UConn in 1986.
Calhoun and his wife Pat were married in 1966 and live in Pomfret, Conn. They have two sons, James and Jeffrey. James and his wife Jennifer live in Massachusetts with daughters Emily (born 3/5/99) and Katie (born 12/29/00) and son Sam (born 6/8/03). Jeffrey and his wife Amy live in Connecticut with daughters Avery (born 1/26/02), Reese (born 4/7/03), and Peyton (born 3/26/05).
