After retiring as the University of Connecticut men’s basketball coach, Jim Calhoun is enjoying his life away from the basketball court by helping out the folks with the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Connecticut.

Calhoun (who happens to be a trustee at the aquarium) was doing a video shoot on the UConn campus that will be shown during University of Connecticut men’s/women’s basketball games.

Below is an Instagram photo posted by @velkie326 of Calhoun hanging out with two African penguins named “Blue-Blue and Green-Blue”:
