In his 2nd season at the University of Buffalo, Buffalo Bulls basketball head coach Bobby Hurley took the team to their first ever NCAA Tournament, where they ultimately lost, but Hurley still achieved something no other Buffalo coach has before. Since then, the rumors about Hurley taking another head coaching job at other schools have been swirling. Hurley himself however, is not speaking on those rumors as of right now.
“Just winning the conference championship and the next day we’re in the viewing party and all of the media responsibilities and the next weekend we’re playing the game, so I’m just getting back to normal life,” Hurley said. “Somewhat.”
“I’m just still processing the season and the great year that we had and I’ve got a lot of kids that I love to coach,” Hurley told For The Win in a recent interview. “And when stuff starts getting speculated it’s because we’re doing very well and Buffalo’s got to feel good that people are acknowledging our season and our success and that’s probably why a lot of that stuff is happening.
“I’m still working through that. Everything else is speculation. I don’t exactly know where it’s going to go but I love coaching my team and that’s the moment I’m trying to stay in right now.”
“I never thought that coaching a group of kids and having the success that we had could compare to those moments as a player,” he said. “But watching my players celebrate in the last few moments of our conference championship game, knowing that they were going to get a chance to play in the tournament was as satisfying a moment as I’ve had in sports.”
