Use to see him a lot while waiting on a racquetball court, always very, very nice to us.

per men's basketball board.


Great guy and made 2 historic hires as well as brought us the Big East. I just never liked his quick kicks on 3rd downs. Drove me nuts.

Of note is that he did turn down Bill Belichick for head coach in 1983 in favor of Tom Jackson.

Can you imagine those press conferences?

Not sure we all realize how important he was in getting UCONN to where it is today athletically. We are UMASS and URI without John's contacts and vision.
