For those wondering if Jim Calhoun sees himself in the race to be the next Boston College coach, he was definitive on Tuesday: He's not interested.

He does not shut the door on coaching again. You can tell in his voice that he's open to discussion. But that discussion seemingly no longer involves Boston College.

Calhoun went on CBS Sports Radio on Tuesday morning and said, “No, I have no interest in any job out there right now,” Calhoun said on The Morning Show. “I have not talked to anybody, have no plans to talk to anybody. But I’ll never say never."

Calhoun stepped down as UConn's head coach in 2012 following a broken hip suffered in a bicycle accident. The interview is below. He also discusses what it's like to be in an advisory role with UConn, and how he's still invested in seeing the school do well -- in its new conference.
