Jim Calhoun is the man. Here he is having just committed a handful of major recruiting violations and instead of firing him the school is going to axe athletic director Jeff Hathaway… and this is a man that has won three women’s NCAA Basketball Championships, two men’s and had a football team in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl. You can’t get a better resume than that.
But despite his track record, Hathaway will be hitting the unemployment lines in a couple of weeks… as soon as the school reaches buyout terms with him. So what is the reason the school is giving us for his ouster (other than the real reason, which is Jim Calhoun hated his guts and UConn’s top donors can’t stand him)?
