He was once named Atlantic 10 Conference Coach of the Year and led the University of Rhode Island to an Atlantic 10 Conference tournament championship. For this piece, let’s take a closer look at Dan Hurley’s net worth in 2023.
Dan Hurley’s Net Worth in 2023 (Estimate): $5 million
Dan Hurley’s net worth in 2023 is $5 million. This is according to reputable outlets such as All Famous Birthday.
Dan Hurley was born on January 16, 1973 in Jersey City, New Jersey. He studied at St. Anthony High School, where he led the team to a 31-1 record as a player. After graduating from high school, Hurley took his talents to Seton Hall University. In five seasons, Hurley averaged 8.8 points, 3.6 assists, and 1.9 rebounds per game.
After a respectable college basketball career, Hurley went into coaching. His first coaching stint saw him serve as an assistant coach to his alma mater, St. Anthony High School. After two seasons, Hurley would become part of the coaching staff for Rutgers University’s Scarlet Knights.
In 2001, Hurley made his head coaching debut for St. Benedict’s Prep. At the high school level, Hurley made a name for himself by turning St. Benedict’s Prep became a powerhouse in the national high school basketball scene. With Hurley establishing himself in the high school ranks, Wagner College opted to sign up the overachieving high school coach with the hopes of turning the program around after a 5-26 season.
Under the coaching of Hurley, the Wagner Seahawks would go on to post a 38-23 overall record in two seasons. After a respectable stint with Wagner College, Hurley accepted an offer from the University of Rhode Island in 2012. For coaching the Rams, Hurley signed a six-year deal, worth $4 million.
As the head coach of the Rhode Island Rams, Hurley stirred the squad to a 113-82 overall record across six seasons. During his six-season stay, Hurley’s best years came during his final two seasons as head coach. In the 2016-2017 season, Hurley led the Rams to an Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship with a 25-10 overall record. For his performance, the University of Rhode Island rewarded the tactician with a seven-year contract extension that paid Hurley $1.1 million annually.
After getting the contract extension, Hurley led the Rams to an even better performance in the 2017-2018 season. He led them to a 26-8 record while clinching the Atlantic 10 Conference regular season championship. However, this would be Hurley’s final stint as head coach for the University of Rhode Island.
After leading the Rams to the second round of the NCAA tournament, Hurley would jump ship and sign a lucrative six-year contract that pays $2.75 million per year with additional performance-related bonuses to coach the University of Connecticut to coach the Huskies. With the decision, Hurley turned down lucrative offers from University of Rhode Island and the University of Pittsburgh.
As of this writing, Hurley has led the Huskies to a 102-55 overall record. However, it’s his ongoing fifth season that has been the best thus far. During the ongoing 2022-2023 season, Hurley has led the Huskies to a 29-8 record, en route to a Final Four appearance. With the Final Four appearance, Hurley and the Huskies ended the NCAA postseason drought which saw them fail to get past the first round in almost a decade.
As per his contract, the Huskies’ incredible run is already enough to earn Hurley a $450,000 bonus and a two-year extension. However, if the Huskies continue to make a deeper push in the tournament, Hurley can earn as much as $750,000 in bonuses. Should the Huskies win it all, Hurley can potentially be paid a total of $3.5 million for the 2022-2023 season alone.
However, in order to advance, the UConn Huskies have their work cut for them as they take on a dangerous Miami Hurricanes. But while the Final Four appearance is already an achievement in itself, Hurley is aiming to lead the Huskies to the national championship game.
In an interview with Hartford Courant, Hurley announced “We’ve already experienced it. And again, we were not a ranked team in the preseason. That was something that we utilized a lot early on, I guess it’s harder now because we’ve had a great season to this point. But we didn’t set out for the season, setting a goal of going to the Final Four – it’s an incredible accomplishment, but we want to play for a national championship on Monday.”
