Right now I can honestly tell you I'm 55/45 ... I want that program to continue -- whether I happen to be the head coach or am not the head coach ...
Eventually what I'm going to do, very honestly, is tell people 'If I'm there on Oct. 1, I'll be there [as coach]. If I'm not, I won't.'
Losing Kemba Walker, facing suspensions, dealing with lost scholarships and coming off a championship would have any coach thinking about retirement. He says he's had enough of people asking him about whether he'll come back -- kind of wonder what percentage he could use to describe his coaching chances that would result in the most questions about his status. Fifty percent seems too obvious. Maybe 49? Ninety? Or lower, like 16.1?
Calhoun's answer to the question on his career plans:
I fully plan on coaching basketball next year. You know, once again, we'll have time in the next couple of months as I settle down, as we kind of look over everything, and I fully expect that I would. ... I've always been in love with basketball, I've never fallen out of love with basketball, but this team reaffirms me that kind of what we're doing is worthwhile because the kind of kids you have.
