National title win earns UConn's Dan Hurley a lucrative contract extension

Jun 22, 2023

Connecticut’s national championship has resulted in a lucrative contract extension for Dan Hurley.

UConn announced Thursday that Hurley had signed a six-year extension worth over $30 million. The Huskies beat San Diego State in April for the national title.

Hurley, 50, came to UConn from Rhode Island ahead of the 2018-19 season and succeeded Kevin Ollie with the Huskies. The Huskies have made the NCAA tournament in each of the last three seasons and entered the 2023 tournament as a No. 4 seed.

UConn was dominant throughout its tournament run after losing the Big East tournament title to Marquette. UConn won every game in the tournament by double digits and its 13-point win over Miami in the Final Four was its smallest margin of victory all tournament. The national title was UConn's fifth in the past 25 seasons and those five titles have come with three different head coaches.
