Daniels: Calhoun told me he'll be back

It's only been 24 hours since UConn fans got the surprise news the DeAndre Daniels would be a Husky. However, that wasn't the only surprise the incoming wing had in store because earlier today Daniels told SNY's Adam Zagoria that head coach Jim Calhoun had promised him he would return to coach the Huskies next season. From the article:

"[Calhoun said] I don't have to worry about him not being there," Daniels told by phone Wednesday. "He said he'll be there."

There have been questions about the possibility of Calhoun's retirement since UConn won its third national title in April. In the past Calhoun had indicated he might retire if he ever got his third ring.

Other news of note from the article: Daniels didn't make up his mind until yesterday and has never actually been on the Storrs campus, although his parents have. He told Zagoria that right now his goal was to spend two years at UConn before starting a potential pro career.
