Dan Hurley Expected To Decide On Lakers Job By Monday

UConn’s Dan Hurley will make a decision on Monday on taking the Los Angeles Lakers head coach job. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on NBA Countdown ahead of Game 2 of the NBA Finals that “Hurley is expected to inform the Lakers of his decision by Monday.”

Hurley said Los Angeles made a “compelling case” for him to take their head coaching job. He also said the Lakers have a “compelling vision”, but that he loves what he’s built at UConn.

It was reported earlier in the day on Sunday that Hurley did not meet with his UConn players over the weekend. Hurley had previously met with his team to inform that he was discussing leaving the Huskies to take the Lakers job.

It’s been reported that Los Angeles has made Hurley a “massive” offer to become their next head coach. Expectations are that the Lakers may have offered Hurley more years and more money than is common in NBA coaching contracts. Los Angeles wants Hurley to bring a program-building style of coaching to the NBA, given concerns the new CBA has placed on teams above the tax aprons.
