Jim Calhoun, the former UConn coach, is said to have “significant interest” in a coaching job at Boston College, ESPN reported.
The news network cited multiple sources close to the matter.
Calhoun, 71, stepped down before the 2012-2013 season after he suffered a broken hip while riding a bike. He’s currently the special assistant to UConn athletic director Warde Manuel.
However, the coach told the Hartford Courant that he doesn’t want to coach again.
“I have not talked to any school, and I don’t plan on talking to any other school. … I never say never, but I am not trying to get a job,” Calhoun said, acording to The Hartford Courant.
Calhoun, from Braintree, Mass., spent 26 seasons at UConn before retiring. He also spent the first 14 years of his career at Northeastern University in Boston.
Last week, he told ESPN that he isn’t ruling anything out.
“I told [ESPN’s Jeff Goodman] when he asked me [Thursday] that I wouldn’t rule out talking to anybody about basketball,” Calhoun said.
