After coaching the Arizona State Sun Devils for one season, Bobby Hurley has reportedly accepted a one-year contract extension from the school, according to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.

According to Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic, Hurley made $1.2 million in his first season and will also receive a $100,000 raise in July. Pending approval from the Arizona Board of Regents, Hurley's initial five-year contract will now be up in 2021-22.

The Sun Devils finished 15-17 in 2015-16 in what was considered a rebuilding season in Hurley's first year. Hurley, the former Duke Blue Devils standout who coached the Buffalo Bulls for three seasons before replacing Herb Sendek at the end of the 2014-15 season, is considered as a rising phenomenon in the college coaching ranks.

The Sun Devils are still looking to fill one of their three open assistant coaches spots vacated by Brian Merritt. Arizona State recently promoted Rashon Burno as the team's associate head coach.
