Coaches with Multiple National Championships

Only John Wooden has more titles than Coach K


Winning the 2011 National Championship put Connecticut's Jim Calhoun in a very exclusive club - only five coaches in Division I Men's Basketball history have won three or more titles.

Calhoun's third title puts him into a tie with the legendary Bobby Knight - only Adolph Rupp, Mike Krzyzewski and John Wooden have more.

Here's a rundown of all the coaches that have cut down the nets more than once.
