Rumors have been swirling about the prospects of Syracuse men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim retiring at season's end.On Thursday, a tweet sent out by the school's official Twitter account included a link to a report that suggested Boeheim was soon to retire. That tweet has since been deleted and the school offered an explanation by Friday morning.But the longtime Orange coach made some comments following his team's 61-39 loss at Georgetown Saturday that might stir up the retirement rumors once again.A reporter asked Boeheim if he would miss being in the Big East Conference during a post-game news conference. Syracuse is set to join the ACC after this school year is over."Well, you know, I'm pretty much ready to go play golf somewhere," Boeheim said. "If was 40 years old, I'd be real upset. I'm not 40 years old. That should be obvious, though."Boeheim then continued to discuss some of the other things about the job he would miss if he left the profession. Specifically, his dealings with the media."I'll miss some of these press conferences with some of you people, having a chance to get mad," he said. "Then everyone's mad at me for a couple of weeks. How can he say those things? It's easy. It's real easy. I don't care."Via USA TODAY
