Bobby Hurley started playing basketball when he was going to St. Anthony High School, where his father Bob Hurley, Sr. was the head coach. While at high school, thanks to his skills, Bobby excelled as a basketball player, and he won four Parochial B state titles with the team. In his senior year, the school was listed No. 1 in the USA, as they won the school’s first Tournament of Champions crown. He finished his high school career with a win-loss record of 115-5, and he managed to win McDonald’s All-American MVP.

Bobby’s professional basketball career began in 1993, when he was selected by the Sacramento Kings as the 7th pick overall in the NBA Draft. He stayed with the Kings until 1998, after a number of turbulent seasons. His rookie season was a disaster, as he fought for his life, after a terrible car accident, and he spent the majority of his rookie season in hospital. After recovering from his injuries, Bobby returned to the NBA and played for the Kings four more years. Before he decided to retire, Bobby played one season for the Vancouver Grizzlies, which increased his net worth a little bit more.

However, after retirement from playing, Booby decided to start a career as the owner and breeder of thoroughbred horses. Currently he owns Devil Eleven Stables, which operates with success, increasing Bobby’s net worth by a large margin, after each win of their horses.

Bobby subsequently returned to basketball as a coach in 2010, when he was appointed as an assistant coach for the Wagner College men’s basketball team, with his brother Dan as head coach. He began slowly to build his coaching career, and in 2012, he became associate Head Coach of the Rhode Island basketball team.

In 2013, Bobby served as the head coach of the University Of Buffalo basketball team, and led them to their first NCAA Division I tournament appearance, and most recently, Bobby has been appointed as the head coach of the Arizona State University Sun Devils, which has only added to his overall net worth.
