Gino Auriemma

Luigi “Geno” Auriemma (born March 23, 1954) is an Italian-born American. Auriemma emigrated with his family from Montella in Southern Italy to Norristown, Pennsylvania when he was seven years old, and he spent the rest of his childhood there. He did not speak English when his family emigrated and he was tutored in 2nd grade at St. Francis of Assisi by a classmate named John.
He is a college basketball coach and the head coach of the University of Connecticut Huskies women’s basketball team. He has led UConn to eleven NCAA Division I national championships, the most in women’s college basketball history, and has won eight national Naismith College Coach of the Year awards.
He’s the guy everyone loves … that is, until he gives it to you straight, and then you hate him for it. But underneath the anger you know what he’s saying is true. Learn More
