BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Hall of Fame coach Jim Calhoun will join ESPN's college basketball coverage this season.

The 72-year-old Calhoun won three national championships at Connecticut in 1999, 2004 and 2011. He retired in 2012 after 26 years with the Huskies.

The network said Thursday that he will appear in the studio, conduct interviews, and call some games. Calhoun will make his debut Nov. 18 for the Champions Classic, the doubleheader featuring Michigan State, Duke, Kansas and Kentucky.
