University of Connecticut Men’s Basketball Coach Jim Calhoun has confirmed he’ll be back for the 2011-2012 season.

Calhoun completed his 39th year as a collegiate head coach last season, 25 of them at UConn. There had been speculation he might decide to retire after winning his third national championship.

The UConn Athletics Department released a brief statement saying Calhoun told UConn President Susan Herbst that he intends to fulfill his contract to coach in the coming season.
