This isn't a random "vote of confidence" or "I want to stay here for a long time" comment. This is the prime season for coaching movement so official announcements this time of year are pretty rock solid. I'm still amazed Hurley continues to refuse bigger paydays. Is it family that is keeping him in Kingston for now? It would probably take a life altering event (girlfriend having child, family living in the street, etc) for him to not return to URI next season. He isn't a graduating senior so he'd have to sit out a season if he transferred and he's off the NBA radar after missing this season to the ACL.
