The Rhode Island Rams have reportedly filled their head coach vacancy, and they've done it by milking one of basketball's famous families.
Dan Hurley, whose father Bob is a Hall of Fame coach at St. Anthony's High School and brother Bobby became a star while playing at Duke, has agreed to become Jim Baron's successor at Rhode Island, according to a CBS Sports report.
Sources told CBS Sports that Hurley informed his Wagner team of his intentions to leave for Rhode Island on Tuesday morning, and a news conference has been scheduled for Wednesday at 1 p.m.
Hurley was 38-23 during two seasons at Wagner, his first collegiate head coaching stop after leading prep school St. Benedict's to a 223-21 record over nine seasons. Wagner was 25-6 this season, losing to Robert Morris in the NEC semifinals.
According to CBS Sports, it's likely that Bobby Hurley -- who was on Dan's staff at Wagner -- will decline an opportunity to follow his brother to Rhode Island in favor of taking the head coaching position at Wagner.
