Calhoun has not returned multiple calls to CBSSports today. Been told an announcement could come as early as tomorrow.
Might be the end of an era of UConn basketball that we know it.

EDIT: Oh, and while I respect his accomplishments, my reaction is pretty much "good riddance."

I was about to ask "Is it wrong to say good riddance" ... I guess it's not.
The big question I have is who is UConn going to look for to take charge of the program now ... and will they be able to keep up the success they've had on the court once Calhoun is gone.

The CBT article on the subject suggested that:
1) Kevin Ollie will likely take over as an interim coach.
2) Calhoun may have waited this long to force that move instead of allowing the AD to choose an "unapproved" successor.

Mike Ratface, Army/dook: 927
Jim Boeheim, Syracuse: 890
Roy Williams, Kansas/UNC: 675
Bob Huggins, Akron/Cincy/K-State/W. Virginia: 639*
Mike Montgomery, Montana/Stanford/Cal: 635
Rick Pitino, Boston/Providence/Kentucky/Louisville: 629
Cliff Ellis, S. Alabama/Clemson/Auburn/Coastal Carolina: 613
* - Bob Huggins has 710 wins, but only 639 are at the D-I level.

I like this idea, wonder if it's been done before?
Calhoun said he's talked to planners about including a locker room just for basketball alumni, who will be able to use the facility.
