STORRS, Conn. (AP) - UConn basketball coach Dan Hurley had surgery Friday to relieve pain in his neck and upper back.

School officials say doctors successfully performed the surgery at the Center for Comprehensive Spine Care in New York.

Hurley is expected to be released from the hospital within the next few days, then recuperate at home.

UConn officials say Hurley is not expected to miss the Sept. 28 start of the Huskies’ practices.

The school said in a statement that surgery was determined to be the best course of treatment to alleviate Hurley’s symptoms of degenerative changes in his spine.



Hurley is entering his second season at UConn. The Huskies were 16-17 last season, going 6-12 in the American Athletic Conference.
