Hurley joined Ned Wulk and Herb Sendek as the only coaches in Arizona State history with 150 or more wins.
Wulk was the head coach from 1957-1982 and accumulated 406 wins during his tenure. Sendek was the head coach prior to Hurley taking over.
He was the head coach from 2006-2015. Sendek racked up 159 wins during that time.
Hurley has been the head coach since 2015 and now has 150 wins. He can surpass Sendek in wins in February depending on how well the team plays.
It won’t be easy as all of the games this month and the beginning of next month are in conference.
