UConn men's basketball head coach Dan Hurley gave the perfect response to questions about potential interest in Kentucky's coaching vacancy after winning his second consecutive national championship Monday (April 8) night.

Hurley, 51, joked that his coaching career had previously moved his wife, Andrea, a fellow New Jersey native, and that he wasn't taking a chance on relocating again.

"We just went to Rhode Island, which I had to drag her to, and then to Connecticut, I got her closer (to New Jersey). I can’t afford a divorce right now, I just started making money," Hurley said via college basketball writer Jaden Daly.

Hurley agreed to a six-year, $31.1 million extension to remain UConn's head basketball coach through the 2028-29 season last June, which came two months after becoming the third coach to lead the Huskies to a national championship, following Jim Calhoun (1999, 2004, 2011) and Kevin Ollie (2014), in April. UConn repeated as national champions Monday night with a 75-60 win against Purdue in the March Madness Tournament Final at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, earning their sixth national title in program history and tying North Carolina for third all-time behind only UCLA (11) and Kentucky (8).

UConn concluded the 2024 NCAA Tournament with a +140 point differential, the highest total in March Madness history, defeating No. 16 Stetson (91-52), No. 9 Northwestern (75-58), No. 5 San Diego State (82-52), No. 3 Illinois (86-72) and No. 4 Alabama (86-72) en route to Monday's win. The Huskies are the first No. 1 overall seed to win the national championship since Louisville in 2013.
