08:20 AM ET 09.20 | Jim Calhoun won't be stomping along the sidelines this coming season at UConn, but he will continue to be paid as if he were. In fact, he will earn more not to coach the Huskies this season than he did to coach them last season. Calhoun, who announced his retirement last week after 26 seasons at UConn, is guaranteed at least $2,742,307 of the $3 million that he was scheduled to receive between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, in the fourth year of a five-year, $13 million contract that he signed in 2010. Calhoun made $2.7 million in Year 3. If Calhoun elects to take a final $1 million retirement payment by the March 15, 2013 deadline, the total compensation rises to about $3.75 million.
