Kevin Ollie out recruiting: "We can't play in the postseason, I have no contract and our conference is dying. Please come to UConn."— Shawn Courchesne (@ShawnCourchesne) November 28, 2012
Calhoun, who had spinal surgery in February [and just-revealed surgery in May to remove an apparent cancerous growth from his lungs], retired in September weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured hip suffered in an August bicycling accident.
The three surgeries "took a toll on my body," Calhoun told YES, "and I was tired. Now, the energy level I feel is much different."
The 70-year-old Calhoun, who is still using a cane while recovering from that surgery, also told YES that he has not completely ruled out a return to coaching.
"I would never say never," Calhoun told YES.
