Former University of Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun is interested in the open Boston College position, according to an ESPN report.
However, Yahoo! Sports reports that the interest is not mutual.
Calhoun, 71, who is from Braintree and coached at Northeastern from 1972-86, left UConn in 2012. He won three national championships at UConn, and has a career record of 877-382.
“I would not be opposed to talking to anyone about basketball,” Calhoun told ESPN Friday.
UConn was banned from last year’s NCAA Tournament because of poor academic performance, and Calhoun was injured in a bicycle accident in August 2012 prior to stepping down as UConn coach. He also has had three bouts with cancer.
He told the Hartford Courant that he has not talked to any school.
“I never say never, but I am not trying to get a job,” he told the Courant.
