UConn coach back home following hip surgery

  •  

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.
