Husky coaches inducted into Hall of Fame
- Updated: April 24, 2013
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Former Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun and UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma have been inducted into the state’s Hall of Fame.
The pair were inducted on Wednesday along with Roger Sherman, a founding father who helped draft the Declaration of Independence and toy maker A.C. Gilbert, known for creating the erector set.
Calhoun, who retired after the 2012 season, guided the Huskies to three national titles in his 26 years at UConn. Auriemma coached his team to that program’s eighth national championship earlier this month.
The Connecticut Hall of Fame was established in 2005 to recognize the outstanding achievements of people from Connecticut.
The induction ceremony coincides with the annual “Husky Day” at the Capitol, which will include appearances by members of the schools’ athletic teams.
