If you live in Connecticut like I do, there's always a big discussion to whom are the top paid employees in the state. And every year, it always comes down to UConn Huskies basketball coaches (men's and women's) and football coach.
In 2012, it was no different as former UConn men's coach Jim Calhoun, UConn women's coach Geno Auriemma and UConn football coach Paul Pasqualoni topped the list.

According to the Connecticut Post, the butt grab was all in good fun.
“She was staring at my butt and she was commenting on it and I said, ‘Really? How about yours?’ and she went, `Yeah, look at it,’ and I went (slap), I’ll teach you a lesson. And then...
AP photographer Jessica Hill took this photo of Geno Auriemma apparently slapping Kim Mulkey on the butt. And just when you say to yourself, “Auriemma couldn’t be slapping her on the butt”, Auriemma goes ahead and confirms it to the the Connecticut Post’s Rich Elliott.

#1 ranked Baylor beat UConn in Hartford Monday, 76-70. Britteny Griner scored her
3,000th career point during the game giving the Huskies their 23rd
consecutive win. Before the game, Huskies coach Geno Auriemma greeted Baylor coach Kim Mulkey with what a nice little slap on the ass.
Here's Geno's explanation of the ass-slap:

If UConn Huskies women's basketball head coach Geno Auriemma wanted an idea of where his team was, the Baylor Lady Bears would be a good measuring stick.
And when all was said and done, Auriemma found out his team isn't quite as a good as the No. 1 team in the land.
After a rough first half, Brittney Griner poured in 21 of her 25 points to lead Baylor to a 76-70 win...
