Calhoun Leaves Hospital After Surgery For Hip Fracture
STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun has been released from the hospital following surgery to repair a hip fracture.
The school said Calhoun went home Tuesday afternoon, is in good spirits, and will begin rehabilitation. No timetable has been set for his return to work.
The 70-year-old Hall-of-Famer injured his left hip Saturday in a fall during a bicycle ride near his beach home in Madison and underwent surgery that night to repair the fracture.
Calhoun is 873-380 in 40 seasons as a head coach and has led Connecticut to three NCAA titles. He has said he will announce before the start of fall practice whether he will return for a 27th season at UConn.
He said Monday that the injury will not change his long-term plans.
