Well, now they added the rest of the story . . .

Connecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun says he is taking a medical leave of absence.

The university released a statement from University of Connecticut Health Center physician Peter Schulman, M.D., Jim Calhoun's primary care physician:

"It is my recommendation that Coach Calhoun take a medical leave from his coaching position to address some temporary medical issues, none of which involve any previous medical conditions that he has dealt with."

The university also released a statement from UConn Director of Athletics Jeffrey A. Hathaway:

"Our primary concern is Coach Calhoun's health and his complete recovery. We will do everything possible to support Coach during this time. Jim and I both know that the men's basketball program is in very capable hands under the leadership of Associate Head Coach George Blaney."

He has had several medical issues in the past few years. It might be the way the team is playing. I know I have gotten ill watching them recently. No seriously, I hope it is nothing serious, he is a hall of fame coach and a class guy.

According to UConn spokesperson Kyle Muncy, Cahoun's leave is neither heart- nor cancer-related and he won't need to be hospitalized. Calhoun is a three-time cancer survivor.
