Arizona State Sun Devils head coach Bobby Hurley has been granted a one-year contract extension with a sizable pay raise, according to Doug Haller of azcentral.com.
In other words: Music to the ears of ASU fans.
Here are the full details of Hurley’s contract, according to azcentral.com:
Hurley, 46, who was slated to receive $1.4 million per year through 2021, will be given a $700,000 raise on July 1 to push his contract up to $2.1 million.
On top of that boost, he’ll receive $100,000 more per year on July 1, 2019 and 2020 and a $200,000 raise on July 2, 2021.
Shall he stay with ASU until Jan. 1, 2022, he’ll be granted a $1 million bonus.
Hurley has made good with this program.
After a combined 30-35 record in two seasons, the third-year coach has brought ASU to new heights. The Sun Devils’ 12-0 start was — for a few hours — the best in nation, and the best start in program history. ASU skyrocketed to No. 3 in the AP Poll — the Sun Devils’ highest ranking since 1981.
But it’s the future that may be brighter. Hurley has reeled in two five star recruits in Luguentz Dort and Taeshon Cherry for the 2018-19 season, as well as four-star Elias Valtonen.
With that, four-star Jaelen House (class of 2019), five-star Kyree Walker (2020) and unrated, but coveted recruit Mike Foster (2021) are all poised to join the Sun Devils.
