TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State has hired Bobby Hurley as its basketball coach.
The 43-year-old Hurley spent the past two years as the head coach at Buffalo, where he led the Bulls to 23 wins and an NCAA Tournament berth this past season.
He replaces Herb Sendek, who was fired March 24 after nine seasons.
Hurley has an extensive basketball background, playing for father Bob Hurley Sr. in Jersey City, New Jersey, and four years at Duke. A point guard, he led the Blue Devils to national championships in 1991 and 1992 and was an All-American in 1993.
Hurley spent five years in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings, playing the final four seasons after being involved in a near-fatal car accident.
