Bobby Hurley addresses Arizona State future as NCAA Tournament is in jeopardy
Bobby Hurley is in his eighth season at Arizona State, but the Sun Devils haven’t made the NCAA Tournament since the 2018-19 season.
On Tuesday, he was asked about his future as the Sun Devils are 19-9 this season. Recently, they lost last week to Colorado, and earlier this month, the Sun Devils fell to Oregon. Overall, they’re 4-2 in February. ASU is currently on the “Next Four Out” grouping by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi’s Bracketology.
On with his weekly radio show, Hurley said ASU has a great opportunity to close out the season with road games at Arizona, UCLA and USC. He also addressed his future as the heat on his coaching future has ramped up since the Colorado loss.
“I’m not as much looking at my future as I am just trying to do the best I can for these kids. … I love it here. I’ve had two kids go to ASU. Arizona feels like home to me. But I can’t say for sure what the long-term future looks like.”
Hurley said he truly enjoys being the ASU head coach. He still has a ton of a passion and energy for coaching, and thinks he’s in the “prime” of his coaching career.
