Via The Victory Formation:

According to a report from ESPN citing multiple sources, former UConn head coach Jim Calhoun is showing "significant interest" in the opening at Boston College.

Calhoun resigned from his position with the Huskies prior to the 2012 season, citing health reasons. Calhoun has battled cancer and suffered injuries in a bike accident. He won three National Championships during his 26-year tenure in Storrs.

Via ESPN:

Calhoun, who is the special assistant to UConn athletic director Warde Manuel, recently told ESPN that he was in good health and wouldn’t rule out a return to coaching. When reached for comment on Friday morning, Calhoun declined to talk specifically about any interest in the BC job. However, he did not rule out his interest in returning to the sidelines.

“I would not be opposed to talking to anyone about basketball,” Calhoun said.

Boston College dismissed Steve Donahue earlier in the week after four seasons and a 54-76 mark. They have not reached the NCAA Tournament since 2009.

Despite ESPN’s report of Calhoun supposed interest, Yahoo!Sports says that it isn’t ‘mutual’.

Calhoun’s career record is 873-380.
