My brother from a different mother, Dom Amore, who can never resist the chance to take a trip to New York (especially when the company is providing the dime) attended Monday’s YES “Center Stage” taping during which host Michael Kay interviewed Jim Calhoun.
After the show, Kay asked Jim if he thought Coach Auriemma would make a good men’s college coach.
This is a topic we [the women's basketball writers] have occasionally broached with him, normally by starting the question with “Geno, this is purely hypothetical, but….”
“I would like to see him try,” Calhoun said. “With the things he does with his players, he does some great stuff, yes, he could. … I think he has that swagger, the way he truly understands the game, I think it would be very interesting.”
