Syracuse's Boeheim: 2018 right to retire, but maybe sooner

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim has always hinted he planned to retire on his own terms. That moment is at hand and his plan remains intact despite NCAA sanctions marring the end of his career.

In an hour-long press conference on Thursday ahead of top teams starting in the NCAA Tournament, Boeheim said that 2018 is the "right time" to retire, but acknowledged that next season could be his last as he and the university appeal punishments for academic and benefits violations.

Boeheim said his plan discussed with the university's chancellor is to retire after three more seasons, but that he will take things year by year.
