Shocked
Shocked I tell you
Who could’ve ever foreseen that this wasn’t destined to work out?
Who’s that transfer they just landed?

I really hope it's not Bob. Would hate to have two Hurley's recruiting New York and New England.
Yeah that’s annoying if they don’t pursue because their brother is already recruiting a kid.

Is Mullen out because of insufficient progress or is there a problem of some kind (violations) or something else under the radar?

My god I love that they leaked this right before the game. Ultimate news dump.

In response to the above. Dan and Bob wouldn’t back off a recruit because the other was already recruiting him.

(come home, Bobby!)

That being said, Bob is not as tied to the northeast as his brother. He’s been all over the place, and geography won’t be a major factor for his next job choice.

St. John's is buying out Mullin (probs $4M - source), will have to pay Hurley's buyout which is $2.5-$3M (source), and will end up having to pay Hurley another $2.1M or more per year (which is what he's making at ASU).

Let's see if it works.
Yeah if that's the case it's not happening. And Rothstein tweet is about what St. John's wants. Not sure if B Hurley wants to come back east at this point.

But is Mullin resigning or being let go? The wording of "step down" makes me wonder. Huge difference.

St. John's has had some players with strong NBA careers. Hall of Fame careers.

AD should reach to them to see if they'll chip in for buyout.

Top of my list for UConn would be John Wooden. But he's not walking through that door and neither is Bobby Hurley
