As the News' Jerry Sullivan first reported on Twitter, former Duke point guard Bobby Hurley is the University at Buffalo's new men's basketball coach.

UB introduced Hurley at a news conference at Alumni Arena that started shortly after 5 p.m.

Listen to Hurley's remarks after being introduced by UB Director of Athletics Danny White:

Earlier this month, White fired longtime coach Reggie Witherspoon in a surprise move to some, setting the stage for a national search.

Here are some tweets from The News' sports reporters about the hiring:

Source close to Duke program tells me Bobby Hurley will be the new Buffalo head basketball coach.

4:06 p.m.

Bobby Hurley? No wonder Danny White had to fire Reggie, even though UB is prolly going to be good next year. Bazooka name recognition.

4:13 p.m.

Who could have guessed UB basketball would have a more interesting March than the Bills?
