According to NBC Connecticut, a source has said that UConn men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun is expected to retire in the near future and said that is was "imminent".
Calhoun, 70, has a had a history of medical issues and has taken leave of absences in the past, including a fractured hip from a bicycle accident in August.
According to NBC Connecticut, nothing was been made official, nor has Calhoun made a decision as of yet.
"Don't be surprised by anything, even this week," Calhoun said. However, another source said that it is all but finalized that Calhoun will step aside and retire as coach.
UConn faces an NCAA Tournament ban for the 2012-2013 season after failing to meet the NCAA academic requirements for the 2007-2010 seasons.
Calhoun took over a hapless UConn program in 1986, but soon led the team to prominence. In 1987, in his second season at UConn, the Huskies won the NIT. Calhoun has won 618 of his 873 wins at Connecticut and has won three national titles, most recently in 2011.
It has been said that Calhoun would like assistant coach and former player Kevin Ollie to become the new head coach, but Athletic Director Warde Manuel said that no decision on Calhoun's successor has been made.
