Calhoun cashes in on success

This just in: Jim Calhoun makes a lot of money.
On an annual basis, it’s north of $1.6 million and south of Tom Cruise, but he has certainly made enough over the years to keep any good Braintree High grad comfortable for the rest of his natural life.
His earnings have been the subject of a great deal of debate ever since his infamous Feb. 22 postgame showdown with free-lance reporter Ken Krayeske. Of course, there wouldn’t have been any discussion at all had he the good sense to deflect the sandbaggy question in a polite, diplomatic, and conciliatory way.
