Webster Bank Congratulates Coach Calhoun On UConn Legacy

WATERBURY, Conn., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Webster Bank congratulates Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun on his remarkable career.  He helped put the University of Connecticut Men's Basketball program front and center in the national spotlight.  Coach Calhoun is retiring as the Head Coach of the men's basketball team after an exciting 26 years with UConn, three national championships, and 873 career wins.

"Coach's leadership and commitment to community have helped make him a great spokesman for Webster Bank since 1999 and we are pleased to say that he will continue to do represent us," said Jim Smith, chairman and CEO of Webster Bank.  "He is more than the heart and soul of UConn Men's Basketball, his spirit and vitality is at the very core of UConn Nation.  Jim is in many ways responsible for the expansive relationship Webster enjoys with UConn Athletics and Alumni Association today."

Smith continued, "I have deep admiration for Jim Calhoun for his unparalleled sense of commitment to improving people's lives.  His unyielding integrity in pursuit of high performance is a defining quality.  He is gritty and determined, honest and true.  His relentless drive for excellence and his uncanny ability to motivate those around him propelled him to the pinnacle, and he brought his players and teams, his university, his charitable organizations, his sponsors and his fans with him.   

We wish Coach well in his retirement but we look forward to his continued tireless efforts to help others in our communities."
