STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun says he plans to return for a 24th season at the school.
Calhoun's Huskies finished the season 31-5, losing in the national semifinals to Michigan State.
Several off-the-court issues had prompted questions about Calhoun's future, including an investigation into UConn's recruitment of former player Nate Miles. The coach also has been treated for cancer three times during his UConn career, including last summer when he successfully battled skin cancer.
In a statement released by the school Thursday, Calhoun said the ``journey'' of the past season has made him realize how much he enjoys being at Connecticut. He enters his 38th season as a head coach.
