Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun won't coach against Chattanooga and might miss a significant part of the remaining NCAA tournament because of health issues, according to two sources familiar with the situation.

The university just confirmed in a release on its website that associate head coach George Blaney would coach Thursday against Chattanooga.

The sources declined to say what exactly was wrong with Calhoun, but cautioned his absence from the tournament might last longer than this weekend. Calhoun was taken to a local hospital.

The Huskies are expected to say more at some point later in the day.

The news is stunning. At his news conference on Wednesday, the two-time national championship coach was jovial and looked fine.

Now the team will have to go at least one game without its coach.

They will bust these guys up if they just keep going down low to Thabet and Adrian and we should be good.

It absolutely goes without saying our thoughts are with Jim.   He's the toughest of the tough, and we wish him a speedy recovery.  He's a champion in our hearts whatever happens in the tourney anyway.

The Huskies are also in good hands with Coach Blaney, for whoever was worried about their stupid bracket..
