UConn head coach Jim Calhoun is taking an indefinite leave of medical absence, the school announced today. The leave, which is effective immediately, is to deal with spinal stenosis, a condition that causes severe pain and limits mobility. Calhoun will definitely not coach the team against Seton Hall on Saturday or Monday when they head to Louisville. Associate head coach George Blaney will take over in his absence. The Huskies went 2-1 under Blaney earlier this season.
We'll have more as this develops.
