STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Former Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun has agreed to make his debut as a radio commentator during the Huskies' season opener against Michigan State in Germany.
The Hall-of-Fame coach, who retired in September, will provide color Friday to go along with Joe D'Ambrosio's play-by-play of the Armed Forces Classic on the UConn Radio Network.
The game is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday at the Ramstein Air Base.
Calhoun will sit in for longtime color commentator Wayne Norman, who is staying in Connecticut to broadcast UConn's football game that same night against Pittsburgh.
School spokesman Mike Enright said there are no plans at this point to have Calhoun broadcast other UConn basketball games. The former coach is still employed by the university as a special assistant to the athletic director.
