Jim Calhoun will be back on a basketball sideline Friday.
The Hall-of Famer and his University of St Joe’s Blue Jays start their season against William Paterson.
Calhoun is happy to be back in his element.
The 3-time National Championship coach let us let us mic him up at practice Wednesday.
Calhoun hasn’t coached a game since retiring from UConn in 2012.
The 76 year old was hired by St. Joe’s to build its men’s basketball program.
He’s brought on familiar faces to help out… Associate head coach Glenn Miller and Assistants Rashmel Jones, his son Jeff Calhoun and Ryan Olander..
It’s easy to see Calhoun is still passionate about what he does, even as he recovers from a recent surgery.
