Jim Calhoun's History Of Breaking The Rules And Wasting Away

Jim Calhoun was hit hard by sanctions this week after the NCAA found he committed recruiting violations by telling high school recruits he was nothing more than a pitiable old man who is going to die soon. The NCAA collected evidence for months in the process of investigating these charges. The 30-page notice of allegations included transcripts of phone calls Calhoun had with prospective recruits:

The NCAA is also investigating some of Calhoun's sideline behavior, including frequently clutching his chest, wailing to God and dressing Associate Head Coach George Blaney as the specter of Death hovering over Calhoun's shoulder:

Though this was the first time Calhoun had come within the NCAA's sights, it is far from the first time allegations were leveled against him for misdeed related to guilting recruits and his incredible age.

  • Spends the night at Richard Hamilton's home after complaining his body was tingling and he would die if moved.
  • Asks prized Israeli recruit Doron Sheffer to take him to the Wailing Wall so that he might die in a holy place.
