If you were wondering what odds UConn men's basketball coach Dan Hurley had as becoming the next LA Lakers head coach, the answer is: He wasn't even listed......at least not with BetOnline when that popular gambling site first released odds in early May.


ESPN reports that he Lakers have had preliminary contact with Hurley and the sides are planning to escalate discussions in the coming days.

Hurley has been at the forefront of the Lakers' search from the beginning of the process, even while the organization has done its due diligence interviewing several other candidates, sources told ESPN.

Hurley, 51, has often described his ambition to one day coach in the NBA and has expressed to the Lakers a desire to explore the full picture of a partnership with one of basketball's winningest franchises, sources further stated.

And with two consecutive NCAA men's college basketball championships, what's not to love?
