Default Jim Calhoun to announce retirement

Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun is expected to announce his retirement at a news conference Thursday, multiple sources told

Calhoun, who coached the Huskies to three national titles, will be replaced by assistant coach Kevin Ollie, the sources said.

Terms of Calhoun's exit and Ollie's agreement were not finalized Wednesday.

A source close to Calhoun told that the Hall of Fame coach has had a lot of time to think about his retirement over the past month. Calhoun fractured his hip in early August after falling off his bicycle.

That program was nothing before Calhoun. Has he built them up enough that they'll continue to be a great program without him?
