TheRoundUp 8/6: Calhoun's APR below average

Coaches APR Released: Five Of Six UConn Coaches Above Average In Academic Performance Study For 2008-09 - Courant.com

UConn men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun scored 844 in the 2008-09 academic year, below the D-I average of 940. Of the six UConn coaches rated, Calhoun is the only one to place below the average in his respective sport.

Oy.

The Associated Press: NCAA gives basketball coaches good grades
Well, this is a bit troubling (also, not necessarily a trend).

But Connecticut's Jim Calhoun, whose program is under NCAA investigation, had an 844 and 909 after scoring 981, 978, 889 and 941 the previous four years. Tim Floyd, Southern Cal's coach during the O.J. Mayo scandal, had a 949 in 2007-08, the year Mayo played in Los Angeles. The year before, Floyd's score was 804.

Former Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson, who left Indiana amid a major NCAA scandal, had only two scores topping 900 on the books. His low, 811, came in his final season with the Hoosiers. Twenty-four of the 25 teams in this year's final AP Top 25 football poll also topped 925. The exception: Brigham Young, whose coach Bronco Mendenhall had a 910.
