Arizona State University basketball coach Bob Hurley Sr. was the keynote speaker at Seton Hall for their annual Business Ethics Breakfast that took place on March 23. The theme of the event was ethics, leadership, and the importance of teamwork, which is something that Hurley knows quite a lot about. The event was a big success and it was open to just the students, faculty of Seton Hall as well as their friends and family.
The Jersey City native first got involved in sports as a basketball player in high school when it became immediately apparent that he was a big star. He ended up attending and playing for Duke University between the years of 1989 through 1993, and eventually entered the 1993 NBA draft where he was selected as the 7th overall pick by the Sacramento Kings. Hurley played with the Kings until 1998 when he did a brief stint with the Vancouver Grizzlies before retiring as a player for good. However, in 2010 he decided to come back to basketball as a coach and is currently coaching the men’s basketball coach for Arizona State University. He was also the head coach for Buffalo between 2013 and 2015.
Hurley Sr. was the keynote speaker for this year’s Annual Business Ethics Breakfast that happened last month in Seton Hall. It was a fun time for the students, faculty, and their families to get to hear from one of the coaching greats that is still involved in the industry.
