Jim Calhoun To Announce Retirement Tomorrow, According To Sources

Long-time Connecticut Huskies men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun is set to announce his retirement, sources are telling New Haven Register's beat writer David Borges. The news came shortly after a source told NBC Connecticut that the retirement of the 70-year-old Calhoun was imminent.

Over the summer, Calhoun suffered a fractured hip when he fell off his bike near his summer home in Madison, CT. Since then, Calhoun has been recovering and working in a limited capacity.

Assistant coach Kevin Ollie is expected to be offered the interim head coaching job, says CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman. Last season, when Calhoun had to undergo surgery to alleviate a spinal stenosis, assistant George Blaney was named interim head coach.

In 26 seasons at UConn, Calhoun has helped the Huskies win more than 600 games and collect three National Championships. In 2005, Calhoun was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame.
