Coach Jim Calhoun Returning to Connecticut?
Connecticut athletic director Warde Manuel said Monday he has no plans to name Kevin Ollie or anyone else as a coach-in-waiting for the men’s basketball program.
Coach Jim Calhoun, who turns 70 this month, is expected to return next season, but has not made his final plans public.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press, Manuel said he is operating under the assumption that the Hall of Fame coach will be back, noting that Calhoun has two years left on his contract.
“I don’t sit here wondering on a day-to-day basis who is going to be my coach next year,” Manuel said. “Unless something changes that I don’t foresee … Jim’s our coach and I’m moving forward in that direction.”
