It is not clear when doctors will allow Auriemma to resume coaching. The No. 2 Huskies face the Sooners on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Showcase at the Mohegan Sun arena in Uncasville. They don't play again until Jan. 2 when Wichita State visits Hartford.
Associate head coach Chris Dailey will take over. She's coached the Huskies to a 9-0 record in games Auriemma has missed during his 35 seasons at Connecticut.
