Calhoun on new AD Manuel

UConn just passed along a statement from basketball coach Jim Calhoun on the school’s new athletic director, Warde Manuel:

“I know our senior administrators have been working very hard to find the best candidate available to become our new Director of Athletics and they are very excited to be able to hire Warde Manuel,” Calhoun said in the statement.

“He seems like the perfect fit for us _ someone who is going to help lead us into the future. I am happy and excited to welcome him into the UConn family and I’m very much looking forward to working with him.”
