The University of Rhode Island reportedly offered Hurley a seven-year extension worth $2 million per year starting in 2019 along with several other incentives.

CBS’ Jon Rothstein previously reported that the University of Pittsburgh offered Hurley a multi-year deal worth at least $3 million per year.

Earlier this month, the university announced it had parted ways with Kevin Stallings after the Panthers completed an 8-24 season that included an 0-19 mark in Atlantic Coast Conference play.

In Stallings’ two seasons at Pitt, the Panthers were just 24-41.
