Dan Hurley, new UConn men’s hoops coach, will get New Jersey homecoming at Never Forget Tribute Classic vs. Florida State

Hurley, 45, grew up in Jersey City, starred under his father at St. Anthony High, played guard at Seton Hall and later coached St. Benedict’s Prep to a record of 223-21 in nine seasons on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Newark. He is starting anew at UConn after leading Rhode Island to back-to-back NCAA tournament berths. The Huskies finished 14-18 last season under head coach Kevin Ollie. UConn fired Ollie for what it said were violations that included improper workouts and improper contact with recruits.
