Good riddance. I bet something is brewing here, either cancer/other serious health issue or NCAA stuff.
Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun is expected to announce his retirement at a news conference Thursday, multiple sources told ESPN.com.
Not surprised. He's had numerous major health issues in recent years, including a recent fractured hip. He's no spring chicken. At some point you just can't physically handle the demands of a job like that. I'm always shocked when coaches have a long life span. It's just too difficult in today's sporting environment.
I was shocked when it looked like he was going to coach this year. Roster down plus NCAA sanctions, probably right call for him. Can't believe he's won 3 national championships.
Good riddance. That about says it all.
I wonder if uconn can keep the program as successful without him?
It's hard to say. They are in good recruiting land. A good bball conference. They'll probably have some carry over success and be in hunt from time to time but I don't think they'll be a consistent powerhouse without him. I guess we should wait and see who they hire. UConn is a big name and they have deep pockets. They may make an out of this world hire and not lose a step.
The death knell of UConn basketball
They are going to announce Kevin Ollie as the new coach.
They will suffer for a while but eventually will make a couple runs. They just became the next Maryland, imo. Good program historically but after their 'legendary' coach retires they slide to nothing to rarely be heard from again.
That is not an out of this world hire. So I say this to UConn basketball.... Goodnight sweet prince.
I am glad he's gone..He was nothing but a lying,cheating POS...Good riddance....
Give the gig to Geno... See how he can coach a team of men.
I agree, while the majority of us know he's a former NBA player, not too many recruits will know him. He could turn out to be a solid recruiter, but as a coach we will have to wait and see.
I'd say we won't hear much from the Huskies for quite awhile.
I'd love to see that. Geno is a coward though. He could have made a move to the mens game a long time ago.
There will be much weeping today. It just won't be from me...
This comment has no validity. I love Gary, but we finally have a coach that is willing to recruit to sustain success. Not to mention, Turgeon can coach his butt off.
