Will legendary college basketball coach Jim Calhoun return to UConn for his 27th season? Or, as a 70 years old who is overcoming spinal stenosis, is he about to retire?

Having been at Connecticut for almost a third of his life, anyone would understand if Jim is having trouble with the decision.

A Hall-of-Fame coach with 3 national championships and 873 career victories, Calhoun’s legacy will live forever. His health problems are plenty. As he continues to battle his spinal stenosis, he’s also recovering from surgery (needed after he fell off his bike) to a fractured hip that required insertion of a rod and pins in his left leg for support.

Mark Blaudschun wrote a special for cnnsi.com on the legendary coach. Does Jim sound like a man ready to retire? Click here, read the story, and decide for yourself.
