Mistake for any coach to go from college to pro and I’m sure Hurley knows why/what I’m saying…

Uconn is his dream job, he will be one of the highest paid coaches in the game. His family is in the Northeast. His wife has repeatedly said she wants to remain in the Northeast. He's chasing history, he's fiercely loyal

Will he give that all up to coach a forty year old Lebron and a Lakers program that has no short term opportunity to compete

Lebron isn't a draw for anyone anymore, coach nor player.
Look at who's he playing for and with now.

Hasn't he said he wants to coach at the NBA level?

Curious what the $ amount is -- maybe close to $20 mil/year

I think he should stay at UConn personally, but wouldn't be surprised at all if he left. Hard to turn that down

Dan Hurley to meet with Lakers Friday about coaching job.​

Connecticut Huskies coach Dan Hurley is traveling to Southern California for a Friday meeting with Los Angeles Lakers VP of Basketball Operations Rob Pelinka and owner Jeanie Buss -- with the organization eager to close on a deal to hire the two-time national championship coach, sources told ESPN.
The Lakers' pursuit of Hurley to become the franchise's next coach has accelerated and the sides are already discussing the contractual parameters of a potential deal that would be significant in both its length and salary, sources said.
Hurley has not made a decision about exiting UConn for the NBA, but there is momentum in these discussions, sources said.
Hurley informed his administration on Wednesday of his interest in talking to the Lakers -- and his players of the talks on Thursday, sources said.

Willie is UConn’s biggest booster .
He’s writing a 40 million dollar check as I type this to keep him at UCONN

At first Hurley turned it down . Then Willie sweetened the pot
He told Willie if he changes his avatar from Calhoun to Hurley he will stay

Press conference announcing the extension shortly

Moving to LA would be everything Dan Hurley says he doesn't want

I'm going with his agent told him to make this trip for leverage

He gets 8 figures, his assistants get 7, he stays

UConn probably gotta offer him $11-12 million per year if they want to keep him

Basically gotta double it
