HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -The leaders of the Connecticut General Assembly's higher education committee say UConn coach Jim Calhoun should be reprimanded for his tirade at a freelance journalist who questioned his $1.6 million salary.
Sen. Mary Ann Handley, D-Manchester, and Rep. Roberta Willis, D-Lakeville, say Calhoun's outburst Saturday does not reflect well on him or the state's flagship university.
In a letter sent Thursday to UConn President Michael J. Hogan, the lawmakers say the Hall of Fame coach should be reminded that he is a role model for many athletes and students.
Calhoun won his 800th career game Wednesday when the No. 2 Huskies beat Marquette.
A call to Calhoun's office was not immediately returned.
