    He has an explosive temper.
    He cursed out a UConn beat writer who asked him why he didn’t recruit Connecticut native Ryan Gomes. The writer is one of his best friends in the media.
    He has made several players cry with profanity laced tongue-lashings.
    He built the Husky program from scratch, and has won 2 NCAA titles.
    UConn shocked the world in 1999, beating a Duke team that had 4 lottery picks and was a double-digit favorite going into the final game.
    That win has been called one of the biggest upsets in college basketball.
    Along with Geno Auriemma in 2004, they led both UConn programs to the national championship in the same year. It is the only time it has been done in history.
    In contrast to many of his counterparts who try to play down the expectations, when Wilbon asked him on PTI if he thought he could win it all in 2006, he said yes.
    Unlike Mike Krzyzewski, he does not appear on every other commercial during March Madness.
    His players are ready for the NBA when they leave UConn.
    Along with his wife Pat, they established the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at the UConn Health Center and the annual Jim Calhoun Holiday Food Drive.
    As of 2006, he has yet to lose a first round or Final Four game.
    He is the only coach in NCAA history to have won at least 250 games at two different Division I schools (UConn and Northeastern).
