Bobby Hurley joins brother's staff at Wagner

Former Duke point guard Bobby Hurley, who led the Blue Devils to consecutive NCAA championships in 1991 and 1992, will try his hand at college coaching on his brother Dan's staff at Wagner College.

Hurley was the seventh pick in the 1993 NBA draft and played five seasons in the NBA in a career cut short by an automobile wreck. He went on to become a thoroughbred racehorse owner and breeder before being hired as a scout by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2003.

Dan Hurley, who played at Seton Hall and had been coaching St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, N.J., was named Wagner's coach April 7.

“I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get started,” Bobby Hurley said in a statement released by the school. “I am really looking forward to working with my brother and am proud that he has been afforded the opportunity to be the head coach at Wagner. This will be special for both of us and I know our parents are excited that we will be on the staff together."

You might want to mention that Wake Forest has a new BB coach, Jeff Bzedlik.

Nope. Conrad left the team in January.
