Lakers Considering UConn’s Dan Hurley To Become Next Head Coach

Lakers Considering UConn's Dan Hurley To Become Next Head Coach

The Los Angeles Lakers are considering UConn’s Dan Hurley who is a back-to-back national champion to become their next head coach.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday morning that the NBA franchise is preparing a “massive, long-term” contract offer for UConn’s Dan Hurley

According to Wojnarowski, the Lakers have had preliminary talks with Hurley and the two sides are planning to have larger conversations in the coming days.

Prior to taking the helm at UConn, Hurley was a high school coach at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, New Jersey, before taking head coaching positions at Wagner (2010-12) and Rhode Island (2012-18).

He inked a six-year contract with UConn months after his first national championship in 2023. At UConn, Hurley’s team has made four straight NCAA Tournament appearances and won the 2023 and 2024 national titles with dominant March Madness runs.

With a title game win over Purdue in April, UConn became the first team to successfully defend a national title since the Florida Gators in 2006 and 2007.

The Lakers fired head coach Darvin Ham on May 3. Ham held the job for just two seasons, both of which ended with playoff defeats against the Denver Nuggets.

The team went 47-35 in the regular season, earned the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference through the NBA Play-In Tournament and fell to the Nuggets in a five-game series in the first round.

The amazing coach has seemingly gotten approval from Lakers’ top star LeBron James who posted about Hurley in a social media post on April 19, saying, “He’s so DAMN GOOD!!! Along with his staff. Super creative with their O! Love it.”
