Jim Calhoun SpeakingThe 70-year-old Hall of Famer Jim Calhoun scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. Thursday to announce his retirement. Calhoun racked up 873 collegiate wins – 625 of them at his beloved UConn, where he ran the men’s program for 26 years and won three national titles. Recently, though, Calhoun has struggled with health problems, including a fractured hip that required surgery and left him on crutches after a bicycle accident last month.

Assistant coach Kevin Ollie, who played for Calhoun and was his hand-picked successor, will be introduced as the Huskies’ new coach. Ollie will take over a Huskies team that is ineligible for the 2013 NCAA tournament because of its failure to meet national academic standards, one of several off-court problems that hit UConn late in Calhoun’s tenure. Ollie is one of more than two dozen players whom Calhoun sent to the NBA, a list that also includes Ben Gordon, Kemba Walker, Rudy Gay and Emeka Okafor.

Look for Jim Calhoun to take some time to recover from his health struggles and shortly after hit the road for Corporate Appearances and Speaking Engagements.
