Jim Boeheim continues to add additional comments on statements he made in a recent ESPN interview that made numerous headlines. Boeheim’s latest statement clarifies what he said in regard to his future as Syracuse’s head coach.

Monday evening, a statement was posted to Boeheim’s Twitter account clarifying that he had no plans to retire. Boeheim says his ESPN comments were not addressing 2023-24 beyond a potential retirement.

Thamel wrote Saturday, “Boeheim told ESPN he would “probably” return for the 2023-24 season and that the decision to do so is up to him.”

The following quotes from Boeheim were included in Thamel’s article:

“I have no other plans. Listen, this has been the question of the day for 15 years. This isn’t a new question. It’s just the calendar going, ‘Well, he’s 78.’ It’s just the calendar. If it wasn’t the calendar, if I was 65, no one would be saying anything. And I’m not going to retire just because it’s the calendar. Anything can happen. Anything, literally. We’ll just see what happens. I don’t say anything because I don’t know.”

“Ninety-five percent of Syracuse people want me to coach,” he said. “Why wouldn’t they? As bad as we’ve been the last two years, we were fun to watch last year and we’re still fun to watch and we’re still competing. We just played three of the top teams in the country to a standstill. If you’re getting beat by 20 by those teams, then you say, ‘OK, we’ll see.'”

Earlier Monday, Boeheim issued a public apology for other comments in the ESPN interview about ACC programs buying teams through NIL.
