In March, Hurley led the Sun Devils to their third NCAA Tournament appearance in his eight seasons as head coach. ASU is 141-113 with Hurley at the helm, and he holds a 71-76 record in the Pac-12.
Following ASU’s 72-70 loss to TCU in the Round of 64, rumors started to circulate that Hurley could be eyeing an exit from ASU in favor of a return to the East Coast.
The university confirmed the report in a press release Tuesday evening.
“It’s an honor to continue my journey as the head basketball coach at Arizona State University,” Hurley said. “I want to thank Dr. Crow and Ray Anderson for their commitment to our program and trust in my leadership. I’m looking forward to building off our success this season and taking the program to greater heights in the future.”

We share a strong confidence in the present and future state of Sun Devil Men’s Basketball.”
The extension is subject to approval by the Arizona Board of Regents.
