Luke Murray a Coach on the Up
Now in his second season with the Huskies, Luke joined Coach Dan Hurley’s staff in April 2021. He had previously worked with Hurley at both Wagner and Rhode Island, bringing a wealth of experience to UConn.

Additionally, 247Sports recognized him as one of the top five recruiters in the nation.
The father-son duo shares a strong bond, with Bill’s passion for sports undoubtedly influencing Luke’s career path. Their relationship adds a layer of heartwarming sentiment to the Huskies’ ongoing success.
As UConn progresses to the Elite Eight with Luke Murray as assistant coach, Bill Murray’s bracket remains unscathed, and the Cinderella story continues. Can the Huskies keep the magic alive? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: Bill and Luke Murray will be savoring every moment of this thrilling journey.
