A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Dan Hurley has agreed to a contract extension with the University of Rhode Island, officially eliminating him from contention for the coaching position at Rutgers.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school has not announced the deal, which will extend Hurley's tenure with the Rams through 2019-20.
The 40-year-old Hurley and Rhode Island began working on the parameters of the deal last week, and on Monday, Rutgers spoke with him. It seemed like a possible fit, as Hurley grew up in Jersey City, N.J., played at Seton Hall and was an assistant coach at Rutgers.
