Jim Calhoun and Connecticut on the program's third NCAA championship in April.


STORRS, Conn. (AP) — University of Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun is staying on the job, ending speculation he might retire.

Kyle Muncy, assistant director of athletics, said in an e-mail that the 69-year-old Calhoun informed university President Susan Herbst that he will coach this coming season.

Calhoun had not set a deadline for himself to decide on whether to retire.

He led the Huskies to a third national championship last April.
