Geno Auriemma has redefined the meaning of success in women's college basketball in his 30 years as head coach of the University of Connecticut.

During his illustrious tenure, Auriemma has transformed the UConn program into the standard that all others are measured, both on and off the court.

Under his guidance, the Huskies have been transformed from a program with only one winning season, to its current state, which includes 10 national titles, 16 Final Fours, five perfect seasons (1995, 2002, 2009, 2010, 2014) and 41 Conference titles, all since Auriemma's arrival in 1985.

On the court, his success includes 10 national championships, including a record 90-game winning streak and a spotless 40-0 mark during the 2013-14 campaign. Off the court, success means a flawless, 100 percent graduation rate among four-year players and one of the most beloved and followed sports teams in the country.

This unmatched success, which is the standard for collegiate programs nationally, was recognized with Auriemma's induction into both the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (Springfield, Mass.) and the Women Basketball Hall of Fame (Knoxville, Tenn.) in 2006.

In addition, Auriemma recently finished a successful four-year term as he was named the head coach of the U.S. National Team, which won the gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Auriemma's squad, which included six former Huskies, posted a spotless 8-0 record en route to the gold medal. Auriemma agreed to serve a second term as the National Team coach from 2013-16.

He is the first coach in women's basketball history to guide a team to five consecutive Final Four appearances on two separate occasions and the current run of eight-consecutive Final Four appearances is also a record. Auriemma is a seven-time national coach-of-the-year and has been named the Conference coach-of-the-year 12 times. In all Auriemma has garnered a combined total of 24 National Coach of the Year honors.

His 30-year overall record stands at 917-134 (.873), the best winning percentage in the history of the sport and he became only the fourth coach all-time to eclipse the 900-win mark when the Huskies defeated Cincinnati on February 3, 2015. Auriemma reached win number 900 in fewer games than any coach in the history of the game.

Under Auriemma, UConn has captured both a conference regular season and tournament title in the same season 17 times.

The Huskies have won the conference tournament crown in nine of the past 11 seasons. Connecticut extended its streak of consecutive NCAA Regional appearances to 22 straight and advanced to the NCAA Final Four for the 16th time in the program's history. Auriemma also guided UConn to its 20th 30-win season in 2014-15 and its 20th in the past 22 seasons.

Auriemma is a 1981 graduate of West Chester with a B.A. in political science. He resides in Manchester, Conn., with his wife Kathy. They have three children and three grand children.
