HARTFORD, Conn. — Hall of Fame basketball coach Jim Calhoun has been accused of sexual discrimination by a former associate athletic director at the University of Saint Joseph, the Division III school where Calhoun now works.

Jaclyn Piscitelli filed a lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court against the small Catholic school, which began admitting men in 2018.

She alleges she was fired after complaining about the conduct of men in the athletic department, including Calhoun, 77, after he was hired to form and coach the school’s men’s basketball team.

She alleges, among other things, that the former UConn coach once called her “hot” and on another occasion forced her to clean up coffee grounds he spilled, telling her it was something his wife would do for him at home.

A spokeswoman says Saint Joseph “takes compliance with all matters relating to Title IX very seriously.”

A text message seeking comment was left for Calhoun, who is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
