Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun says he is being treated for his second bout of skin cancer in a year, and he wants to keep coaching.

The 66-year-old Hall of Famer says a lump removed from his neck on May 6 was malignant. He is to undergo six weeks of radiation treatments next month. His doctors say there should be no long-term effects from the radiation. They expect him to return to a normal lifestyle, including coaching.

Calhoun has spent 21 seasons at UConn, with two NCAA titles.
