Hurley says his heart is in Buffalo

BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – UB Bulls head coach Bobby Hurley has yet to sign an extension with the University at Buffalo, however on Tuesday he said on Colin Cowherd’s ESPN radio show that he’s not going anywhere.

“My heart is here in Buffalo with this group of kids coaching that I’m coaching, and that’s what I plan to do moving forward,” Hurley explained.

After winning the MAC championship and heading to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history, Hurley drew interest from bigger programs with deeper pockets. However, he credits the athletes as opposed to himself for the teams success and the added interest in his coaching services.

“I think it’s a testament to what our kids accomplished. A kid like Justin Moss, he went from three points a game to 17 a game and was player of the year in the conference this year. He’s a junior, and we’ve got him coming back. Shannon Evans as a sophomore averaged 15 a game. He’s second-team all-league. Lamonte Bearden, I started a freshman point guard who just got better and better as the year went on. These guys really delivered and put Buffalo on the map for the first time in school history playing in the NCAA Tournament, and that’s why this stuff is going on.”
