Rutgers has zeroed in on Los Angeles Lakers assistant Eddie Jordan as a replacement for the fired Mike Rice now that Rhode Island Rams coach Danny Hurley has turned down the school, multiple sources told ESPN.com.
Rhode Island coach Danny Hurley was offered the Rutgers job Monday night but turned it down late Wednesday night and will sign an extension Thursday night that will keep him with the Rams until 2019-20, a source with direct knowledge told ESPN.com.
Rhode Island coach Dan Hurley said that he has had no talks with Rutgers officials about replacing the fired Mike Rice, and that he is looking forward to returning next season to a Rams team expected to be a vast improvement over its 8-21 predecessor.
We round again into March and basketball and spring and we come to see the sorting of those who'll stay behind when high school ends from those who might keep climbing. And to remember how much and how little are at stake.
