James Arthur "Jim" Boeheim (pronounced /ˈbeɪhaɪm/; born November 17, 1944) is the head coach of the men's basketball team at Syracuse University. Boeheim has guided the Orange to eight Big East regular season championships, five Big East Tournament championships, and 27 NCAA Tournament appearances, including three appearances in the national title game. In those games, the Orange lost to Indiana in 1987 and Kentucky in 1996 before defeating Kansas in 2003. With 847 career wins, all at Syracuse, he currently stands in fifth place on the wins list of Men's NCAA Division I coaches, and is second among active coaches, behind only Mike Krzyzewski of Duke University. Boeheim has the third most career wins as head coach at any single school behind Dean Smith's 879 wins at North Carolina and Adolph Rupp's 876 wins at Kentucky. The career wins record of 902, held by Bob Knight, was achieved at 3 different schools: Army, Indiana, and Texas Tech.

Boeheim has served as an assistant coach for the United States men's national basketball team at the 1990 FIBA World Championship, the 2006 FIBA World Championship, the 2008 Summer Olympics, and the 2010 FIBA World Championship. In these outings, Team USA finished with two bronze medals and two gold medals, respectively. He will continue to serve in the same capacity at the 2012 Summer Olympics. In addition, Boeheim currently serves as the chairman of the USA Basketball 2009-12 Men's Junior National Committee, has served as the 2007-08 President of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), and currently sits on its Board of Directors. For his accomplishments, Boeheim was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2005.

Off the court, he has battled prostate cancer and has become a major advocate for Coaches vs. Cancer, a non-profit collaboration between the NABC and the American Cancer Society, through which he has helped raise $4.5 million for ACS's Central New York chapter since 2000.
