Consider my day ruined.
Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun has significant interest in the vacant Boston College opening, multiple sources told ESPN.
Calhoun, 71, stepped down in August of 2012 after suffering a broken hip in a bike-riding accident. He's a native of Braintree, Mass., attended American International College in Springfield, Mass., and then coached Northeastern in Boston from 1972-86.
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.
