Ryan Boatright: 'Coach Had to Do What's Best for Him'

Caught Ryan Boatright on his way to Gampel about a half-hour ago. Here's what he had to say about Jim Calhoun's retirement:

“It was a shocker to everybody, but I believe Coach had to do what’s best for him, his family and his health. We’re still going to have to pull together and perform. KO’s a great coach, I love to play for him. We’re all going to miss Coach Cal cussing us out on the sidelines, but he had to do what’s best for him.”

“Everybody’s comfortable with KO. We probably talk to KO more than we talk to Calhoun, anyway.”

Boatright said he learned of the news via a text from DeAndre Daniels at around 6 p.m. on Wednesday. He said the team hasn't met with Calhoun yet but is slated to do so today.

As for his other teammates, he's only spoken with Daniels and walk-on Brendan Allen and "they feel how I feel."

And as for how things went for Boatright this summer: “Good camps, got a lot better, put on weight. I’m good.”
