Former UCONN men's basketball head coach Jim Calhoun has been named in a Title IX sexual discrimination lawsuit, and a specific instance detailed in the lawsuit is downright disturbing.

The former associate athletic director at the University of St. Joseph -- where Calhoun coaches now -- Jaclyn Piscitelli claims she was fired for complaining about the men in the athletic department's behavior.

The incident from the lawsuit depicts Calhoun as a misogynist, which if true, would not be a great look for the Best Coach award winner at this past year's ESPYs.

Calhoun retired as UCONN's head coach in 2012, but made his return to coaching at the Division III level with St. Joseph's. He's coached the likes of Ray Allen, Rip Hamilton and Kemba Walker, and is clearly considered one of college basketball's best coaches.

However, despite all his success as a coach, these newest allegations are nothing short of embarrassing/terrible. More is sure to come out on this topic, you can bet on that.
