He took an immediate leave of absence from the team and underwent surgery on February 6 to have his prostate removed. He was released from the hospital on February 9 and within days was back in the office, involved in the many day-to-day aspects of running the program. On February 22 Jim Calhoun returned to the sidelines for the team's match-up with St. John's at Gampel Pavilion, only 13 days after successful surgery to eliminate his prostate cancer.
