James Arthur Boeheim Jr. used to coach college basketball in the United States. He was the head coach of the Syracuse Orange men’s team in the Atlantic Coast Conference from 1976 until 2023.
Jim Boeheim, the Hall of Fame coach of Syracuse who became one of the faces of college basketball as it grew in popularity during his 47 seasons, was suddenly replaced as the team’s coach on Wednesday (8 March 2023) after a loss in a conference tournament.
Adrian Autry, a former player for Boeheim who has been the men’s basketball team’s associate head coach since 2017, was named as his replacement just hours after Boeheim told reporters that it was “up to the university” to decide if he would stay as coach.
It wasn’t clear right away if Boeheim had retired or been fired, but the university announced his departure hours after Syracuse lost 77-74 to Wake Forest in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament in Greensboro, N.C., on a 3-pointer by Daivien Williamson in the last second of the game.
People are surprised that he is no longer the team’s coach. They are now curious about his private life and what he does outside of the field. In this article, we’ll talk about his current wife and their relationship, as well as his past relationships.
Who Is Jim Boeheim’s Wife?
Jim is married to July Boeheim. The two people met at a party at the Kentucky Derby, where they were put together. In an interview with Sports Illustrated in 1996, she talked about how they met and touched on the fact that they were 20 years apart in age: “I saw someone who is smart, funny, well-read, mature, and based in reality. But I see a person who can also be fun.”
July Boeheim was born on March 5, 1966. She spent time in Florida, Alabama, and Kentucky when she was young. After Jim’s first marriage to Elaine Boeheim ended in divorce, the couple got married in 1997.
The couple has three kids together. As per reports, Two of their sons played sports for their dad. In addition, their daughter, Jaime, played basketball for the University of Rochester. Jim Boeheim also has a daughter from a previous relationship (Elizabeth).
Know About Jim Boeheim’s Previous Relationship
Jim Boeheim was previously married to Elaine. In the early 1970s, when Jim was just getting started as a basketball coach, they met. They went on to get married years later. Then they were married and lived together for 17 years. During that time, they made wonderful memories and had a child. Things didn’t work out for them in the end, and they broke up in 1993.
One of the most unusual things about their relationship is that Elaine, Jim’s ex-wife, is friendly with Juli. The Sports Illustrated article says that Juli and Elaine never had a fight. Elaine, Jim’s ex-wife, said that she didn’t mind that she and their daughter Elizabeth spent time with Jim’s new wife, Juli. Supposedly, they even sat next to each other at Syracuse games.
Jim and Juli run a nonprofit organization together, which is also a big part of their relationship. The Jim & Juli Boeheim Foundation, which was started after Jim was diagnosed with cancer, is one of the things that are most important to the couple. Boeheim was lucky that he was able to beat prostate cancer.
