Danny Hurley Family Life around Basketball

Danny hails from an athletic family where his father and elder brother played basketball.

The clan started with Bob Sr., coach of the now-closed St. Anthony High School in Jersey City, New Jersey.

He won twenty-six state championships throughout his thirty-nine years in the school, where five teams went undefeated. The patriarch gained national attention in 1993 when his eldest son, Bobby, graduated from Duke University as an All-American.

Bobby assisted his younger brother at Rhode Island and Wagner from 2010 to 2013 and now works as the Arizona State Sun Devils head coach.

Known as "The Hurley Factor" and "The Hurley Way," this basketball clan continues to take charge of several notable teams and create history. These sporting bloodline members have been unable to stay away from the sport despite their medical issues. 

In a September 2019 surgery, the UConn mentor had to replace two disks in his neck with artificial ones. The problem was partly hereditary and partly due to his lifelong athlete stance.

Even so, he returned to coaching less than two weeks later, indicating B-ball is in his blood and is willing to pass it down to his kids.
