With long time head coach Reggie Witherspoon gone, Danny White needed to make a splash. He did announcing former Duke star Bobby Hurley would be the next coach at UB. Some praised the hire for Hurley's Duke pedigree, others denounced hiring a 3-year assistant with no head coaching experience. Most were sick of vilifying things and just hopeful for a decent 2013-14 season for Javon McCrea and the seniors.
As of the end of 2013, the Hurley Bulls are a semi-disappointing 6-4 after losses to Niagara, Canisius and Manhattan. Time will tell if Hurley can do what Reggie never could, deliver UB a MAC Tournament Championship.
