HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun is taking a leave of absence to deal with undisclosed medical issues.
The school did not give additional details. But a statement from Calhoun's doctor says it was recommended he take the leave ``to address some temporary medical issues.''
The doctor said the issues do not involve any of Calhoun's previous medical conditions. The 67-year-old Hall of Fame coach is a three-time cancer survivor.
Calhoun has won two national championships with the Huskies. UConn athletic director Jeff Hathaway says associate head coach George Blaney will run the team in Calhoun's absence.
