STORRS, Conn. -- Dan Hurley says he has landed at his dream coaching destination.
Hurley was introduced Friday as the University of Connecticut's 19th men's basketball coach, replacing Kevin Ollie, who was fired earlier this month amid an NCAA investigation and after a second consecutive losing season.
Hurley, 45, who left Rhode Island after six years and two consecutive NCAA tournament appearances, has agreed to a six-year, incentive-laced deal. He will have a base salary of $400,000 but will make at least $2.75 million in his first season, with supplemental income from media fees, speaking appearances and other perks. He could make up to $3.5 million in the contract's final year.
He also has a chance to earn up to another $1 million per year for reaching certain athletic and academic goals.
But Hurley said the decision to come to UConn was not about money. It was about the opportunity to take the helm of a "storied program" that has won four national championships over the past 20 years.
"It's a place that I always hoped I'd have a chance to coach and it's like a dream come true," he said.
