    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    As is always the case, Saturday night’s annual matchup between Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick and Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict’s will feature numerous Division I college prospects.

    This year, however, you may be able to add two more names to the list: Head coaches Kevin Boyle and Dan Hurley.

    The 47-year-old Boyle, at St. Patrick, acknowledges that he would consider options to coach at the next level.

    “You hear rumors all the time about this job opening, that job opening,” he said. “And obviously if a job in New Jersey opens, of course I’d be very interested in seeing if I could be a candidate for one of those. If they open.

    “But obviously you’ve got to wait till something happens and you wish all the guys that are in those places success. And eventually if something opens at one of those schools, then I would love to be considered at that time.”

    • Since Boyle can’t come right out and say it, I will: He obviously wants the Rutgers job. I’m not sure Rutgers can afford to bring in a high school coach, though. They need someone with some sort of collegiate experience.

      Plus, do rival coaches even like him? It would be pretty ironic if Rutgers booted a master recruiter for Boyle, and then no schools sent their players to him.

    • I think Kevin would be a better fit at an NEC or MAAC school to start…Maybe he spends a few years then and then someday moves up in conferences.

    • They actually had to send three policemen to guard the refs as they were leaving the Hoophall Classic the other day because Boyle was chasing them down the basement hallway after the game.
