Ex-UConn coach at Div. III St. Joe
Jim Calhoun has officially been named the head coach at Division III University of Saint Joseph in Connecticut.
The Hall of Famer had already announced he would be taking the job and has been working for a year to establish a men’s basketball program at the small Catholic university, which was an all-women’s school until this school year.
Calhoun also has continued to serve in an advisory role at UConn, where was coach for 26 seasons and led the Huskies to three of their four national titles before retiring in 2012.
The 76-year-old will return to the sidelines with a career record of 873-380 when the Blue Jays open the season on Nov. 9 against William Paterson University. That game will be played at Trinity College in Hartford, which has a gym that seats about 2,200 people, about 1,000 more than the gym at Saint Joseph.
ISLES DUMPED BY FLYERS

Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 22 shots in the first two periods. Christopher
Gibson played the third and made seven saves. David Quenneville scored for the Isles.
UMP WHO BOOSTED KYRGIOS GETS BAN
The chair umpire who climbed out of his seat to talk with Nick Kyrgios during a U.S. Open match was suspended for two tournaments by the ATP.
Mohamed Lahyani will not officiate at his next two scheduled events — the China Open in Beijing, which starts on Oct. 1, and the Shanghai Masters the following week, the men’s tour said in a statement Tuesday.
The ATP says Layhani’s actions during Kyrgios’ secondround victory over PierreHugues Herbert at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 30 were “deemed to have compromised the impartiality that is required of an official.”
