jim-calhoun-uconn-coach.jpgConnecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun announced Thursday he will return next season.

Calhoun's Huskies, who lost in the Final Four to Michigan State, have recently been the subject of recruiting violation allegations. The venerable coach has also had his share of health problems and has been treated for skin cancer three separate times.

There was speculation that these factors could mean the end of Calhoun's coaching career, but judging from his statement, that doesn't look to be the case.
"It is my full intention to return for the 2009-10 season," Calhoun said. "I look forward to coaching next season and to continuing as the head coach at Connecticut into the future. In many ways, the journey of this past season has made me realize how much I love coaching this game, how much I love my kids and how much I enjoy being at Connecticut."
