Dan Hurley Rejects $70M Lakers Offer, Stays with UConn for Title Chase

Posted : 11 June 2024

Dan Hurley has opted to decline a lucrative offer from the Los Angeles Lakers, reportedly a six-year, $70 million deal, to return to UConn and pursue a third consecutive national title. Despite being considered one of the NBA's highest-paid coaches, Hurley chose to continue building upon UConn's championship culture.


Hurley expressed gratitude for the opportunity with the Lakers but emphasized his pride in the championship culture at UConn, where he aims to continue pursuing success. Talks with UConn regarding a new deal are ongoing, with the state governor ensuring Hurley becomes the top-paid college coach.


UConn's athletic director, David Benedict, confirmed Hurley's decision, praising his leadership and the program's success under his guidance. Hurley's choice to stay comes after leading UConn to back-to-back national titles and aims to make history as the second program to achieve a three-peat.


While the Lakers will resume their coaching search, potentially considering candidates like James Borrego and JJ Redick, Hurley's decision highlights his commitment to UConn and the pursuit of further success with the Huskies, despite lucrative offers from the NBA.
