Calhoun expects to remain with UConn

Jim Calhoun’s contract as special assistant to the athletic director expired March 15, but the former UConn head coach “fully intends” to continue working within the athletic department.

After retiring on Sept. 13, Calhoun’s transitional agreement gave him two options by mid-March: Accept a final payment of $1 million or return to the university as coach emeritus at $300,000 per year for five years. It appears he’ll opt for the latter, although he said “nothing is finalized yet.”

In retirement, Calhoun has been working with athletic director Warde Manuel on scheduling matters.
