Sep 13, 2012; Storrs, CT, USA; Connecticut Huskies head coach Jim Calhoun takes questions after announcing his retirement after 26 years as head coach for the UConn men

Former UConn head coach Jim Calhoun reportedly interested in vacant Boston College position


During the American Athletic Conference Tournament last week, former legendary UConn Huskies head coach Jim Calhoun was interviewed briefly by ESPN while he was sitting in the stands watching his former squad compete in the final game, and he was asked about a possible return to coaching, which he never really shot down. Now, ESPN is reporting that Calhoun is definitely interested in the recent opening that was created by Boston College.

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun has significant interest in the vacant Boston College opening, multiple sources told ESPN.

Although they did upset the Syracuse Orange at one point this season, the BC program is in some serious trouble in recent years, and Calhoun would certainly be the man to fix that up.

Boston College fired head coach Steve Donahue this past week after yet another down season, and there were rumors swirling that they want to make a big-time hire.

Calhoun stepped down from the UConn position after winning two national championships due to health issues. In the interview with ESPN last week, however, Calhoun–with a smile on his face–pointed out that his health is no longer a concern.

Could the ACC be getting themselves yet another legend to add to the coaching stable?
