CBKB: UConn says it has new contract with Calhoun


Associated Press

STORRS, Conn. The University of Connecticut says it has a new contract with basketball coach Jim Calhoun.

The 67-year-old Hall of Famer has won two national championships at Connecticut and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2005.

Several off-the-court issues had prompted questions about Calhoun's future last year, and questions were raised again after he took a medical leave of absence in January, missing seven games with an undisclosed condition.

The Huskies (18-16) lost to Virginia Tech in the second round of the NIT.
