Who is Kaitlyn Chen? UConn basketball transfer who always 'rises to the occasion'

T he winds of change are finally beginning to blow through Geno Auriemma's timeless UConn dynasty, as the Huskies made just their fourth transfer addition in the past decade this offseason.

Kaitlyn Chen is heading to Storrs for the 2024-25 season after three standout campaigns 160 miles south at Princeton, compelling Auriemma to buck his usual recruitment strategy and secure one of the best point guards in college basketball .

"I picked UConn because of the environment," Chen said in a statement released by UConn on May 1. "The coaches and players made me feel extremely welcome. I am super excited about this upcoming year. I believe this place will push me to become a better version of myself both on and off the court."

Despite a four-star, top-70 national billing after a standout high school career in San Marino, California , Chen placed a transcontinental gamble on an up-and-coming Princeton program that had finished the previous season ranked for just the third time ever. Chen enrolled at the Ivy League institution ahead of a 2020-21 season that never happened, canceled by the conference in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chen played 31 minutes in her long-awaited collegiate debut the next season, a dominant 17-point win over Maddy Siegrist, Lucy Olsen and Big East squad Villanova, a fitting prelude for one of the most transformative careers in Princeton history. By her third year in black and orange, Chen averaged 15.8 points per game and 4.9 assists a night, good for 51st nationally among nearly 3,500 eligible players, as she helped transform Princeton from loveable upstarts to bonafide mid-major juggernauts.

Princeton featured in the AP Poll during each of Chen's three seasons on campus, securing two NCAA tournament wins and an additional victory over No. 22 Oklahoma during that stretch as well. "In any big situation she rises to the occasion and the challenge," Tigers coach Carla Berube said of Chen. "She doesn't back down in the bright lights and she's ready to do what her team needs for us to be successful. She can put our team on her back."

Berube also provided Chen with a connection to UConn, playing for the perennial powers from 1993-1997 and featuring on the Huskies' legendary 1995 squad that finished 35-0 and won a national title. Chen erased a 15-point deficit against the Huskies in a narrow 69-64 loss two years ago, causing Auriemma to begin monitoring the Californian superstar as well.

Chen graduated from Princeton this spring, and as Ivy League schools don't allow graduate students to compete in athletics, Berube and Auriemma turned her forced transfer move into a pleasant experience. "Honestly, it was a lot more enjoyable than when I was recruited out of high school," Chen said of the transfer process via CT Insider .

"It was nice talking to fewer schools, and I sort of had an idea what I wanted. Then in the end, just visiting here and meeting the people here (sold me). Obviously, all the coaches are amazing and so are all the players. Getting a vibe for this place, I really enjoyed it."

Chen transferred to UConn this offseason

Hotly Pursued Center Cliff Omoruyi on UConn's Transfer Portal Radar

UConn Basketball transfer guard Cam Spencer (14.5 PPG, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists 48 percent FG, 44 percent 3FG) has relished his role as a deadly three-point shooter and emotional leader this season.

Spencer, who has expanded in every component of his game while putting up well rounded numbers in his fifth collegiate season, has been an integral ingredient in UConn's NCAA tournament run and recent Big East tournament championship.

Tristen Newton , one of the most dynamic passers in college basketball who has shown NBA 3-point range and a prolific scoring acumen, is also playing the best basketball of his life. Newton is averaging 15.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 6.1 assists while quarterbacking a high powered offense known for its fluid ball movement, as he piled up 19 assists in the final two games of the Big East tournament.

Both players have been highly productive mainstays for a UConn team that has gone 32-3 following a thorough, 91-52 bludgeoning of Stetson during the first round of the NCAA tournament's East Region. Both players were named to the First Team All Big East, with Newton recently named as a First Team All American.

And, both players are transfers--Spencer from Rutgers and Newton from East Carolina--who have found the most meaningful roles of their career under Dan Hurley.

uconn transfer tour

UConn has adapted to the current landscape of college basketball by thriving with proven, veteran experience and utilizing guys who have played at big stages before as end game deliverers and clutch scorers. While UConn hasn't prioritized the transfer portal at the same frantic rate as other Big East programs have and they continue to register its presence on the seemingly left for dead high school recruiting market, the Huskies have had success with the portal.

The success of Spencer and Newton, along with last year's national championship and the pursuit of back to back titles this season are intriguing selling points to any highly proven player entering its name in the portal. Though Hurley has his own beliefs about the transfer portal and is not in favor of it being open at this time of year, the Huskies are a viable basketball factory which has and will continue to nurture the development of transfer talent.

And so, as Rutgers transfer Clifford Omoruyi weighs the market following a productive senior season at Rutgers in which he averaged 10.3 points and 8.3 boards and 2.9 blocks, the Huskies have surfaced as a potential hardwood home for one of the country's most hotly pursued transfer bigs. A 6-foot-11, 240-pound behemoth, Omoruyi has a MMA fighter build that would be tailor-cut for the physical, black and blue marked Big East conference. As a rim protector and a thunderous, extravagant above-rim finisher and transition finisher, Omoruyi possesses the integral intangibles as a catch and post threat with rarefied athleticism at his size.

With his powerful finishing ability and how he embraces contact, Omoruyi would fill an immediate need for UConn as a traditional big. The Huskies have had success with transcendent interior talents such as Emeka Okafor , 7-foot-3 Hasheem Thabeet , 6-foot-9 bruiser Jeff Adrien , Josh Boone , Hilton Armstrong , and myriad others. This season, 7-foot-2 Center and local Connecticut product Donovan Clingan has been a consistent threat, as he is averaging 12.7 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks. Clingan is averaging 20.2 points and 12 rebounds during the last two games for the Huskies, as he is playing up to the potential he oozes of as a projected Top-10 2024 NBA draft pick.

With Clingan NBA-bound, there is the opportunity for a meaningful interior role for Omoruyi. Playing a prominent role on a program that has had as much success as anyone int the last two seasons should intrigue Omoruyi, who will bring a wealth of experience for his fifth collegiate season.

Since entering his name into the portal, Omoruyi has heard from the Huskies, Alabama, Oregon, USC, Kansas State, St. John's, Florida, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Miami, Villanova, LSU, Villanova, Georgetown, Auburn, and a handful of others.

UConn has several bigs it continues to nurture the development of. Youssouf Singare , a 7-foot-1 Center with high efficiency scoring, length, and shot-blocking, should adapt to a more significant role after playing sparingly as a freshman this season. Samson Johnson, a high-flying 6-foot-10 junior who has shown flashes (16 points against St. John's, 12 points against Xavier, 15 points and eight boards against Texas), should also be back and play a critical role in the trenches.

Yet today's college landscape is predicated on one-year stays and instant impact success from the transfer market. Omoruyi would add to a winning culture and solidify the frontine instantly while authoring an intriguing final chapter of his long career at UConn. He's slated for a visit to St. John's on Monday.

With St. John's bidding adieu to a veritable walking double double in 6-foot-11 center Joel Soriano , who recently played his final collegiate game, Omoruyi would have the opportunity to come in and fill an immediate void in New York City.

Following the winning habit, Hurley is trying to do all the same things that preceded the Huskies’ repeat championship as he goes for the “threepeat.” That includes the tour of the region’s famous ballparks, Fenway on June 15, and Yankee Stadium on Saturday.

“We’re doing everything we did last year after we won it,” Hurley said, chatting behind home plate. “Precisely everything and we’re not doing anything new. So, yeah, we’re superstitious. If we do everything we did last year, we’ll be back.”

Dom Amore: In a region of champions, Dan Hurley’s Huskies are the dynasty in residence function dfm_stn_player_script_id_iLgdKCFX( getS2NApiForPlayer ) { if( typeof window.MNGAuthentication !== 'undefined' ){ const s2nApi = getS2NApiForPlayer( document.querySelector('.k-iLgdKCFX') ); s2nApi.float = ! window.MNGAuthentication.isUserSubscriber(); } }

As in his appearance in The Bronx last July, Hurley slipped on a Yankees jersey with Thurman Munson’s retired No. 15, stepped to the top of the mound, took a short windup and delivered the ball, a little high. He had joked he was dealing with shoulder soreness and elbow inflammation from taking his half-court shots before practice, another of his superstitions.

There are a few more stops to make on this year’s victory tour. Hurley, who was at the Yankees-Red Sox game with his family, watching from an owner’s suite, is between summer sessions on campus, players scattered.

“ Alex (Karaban) was dealing with a foot issue the last week,” he said. “ Liam (McNeeley ) sprained an ankle working out on the Fourth of July back home. He should’ve just grilled like normal people and sat by a pool, but he’s a cyborg. The group is excited and talented. It’s a talented team.”

Much of the effort for the chase for another championship will center around sophomores Jaylin Stewart, Jayden Ross, Solo Ball, and Youssouf Singare , all of whom will be competing for bigger roles as the minutes left behind by the four starters drafted are up for grabs.

“We bet heavy on them,” Hurley said. “We were not as active in the (transfer) portal as a lot of other programs. We trust our player development and our evaluation of their talent. It’s my job as a coach to make sure they’re in a position to keep us were we’re at as an organization.”

‘Can you believe it?’ CT’s Joe Castiglione, voice of the Red Sox, is taking his place in Cooperstown

While Hurley is on top of the game, considered by some a spokesman, if not the face of the Big East and college basketball, he still approaches his coaching life as if there is something to prove.

“That’s not as comfortable a space for me because I don’t look at myself that way,” he said. “We have the confidence of a championship program but we work like we haven’t won anything. I’m so careful not to change in any way. I’m a much better coach when I’ve got a chip on my shoulder, and I think we’re undervalued and people think I (stink). So I’m going to look for slights, or create them where they don’t exist just to keep that chip on UConn’s shoulder. Always fuel the program.”

If slights and criticism are what Hurley needs to thrive, he came to the right venue: Yankee Stadium at a time the Yankees have been struggling, losing 14 of 18 to fall out of first place. There were those among Yankees fans, in the ballpark and on social media, expressing the idea that a fiery Hurley rant might be just what they need. But he compared the Yankees recent struggles to what the Huskies went through in January 2023 before righting things.

“They’re the Yankees, man,” he said. “It’s amazing when you walk in here, the organization treats you so well and waking down the hallway and seeing all the pictures of the champion Yankees. It’s a highlight.”

Hurley, from Jersey City, is a long-time fan of the Royals and George Brett, but the rest of his family are Yankees fans. Now coaching in New England, Hurley straddles the fence between Yankees and Red Sox. As he spoke behind home plate, Red Sox manager Alex Cora came by to say hello.

Thank you to @UConnMBB head coach Dan Hurley — winner of back-to-back NCAA championships — for throwing out today’s ceremonial first pitch! 👏 pic.twitter.com/chcmQVvT2z — New York Yankees (@Yankees) July 6, 2024

So if you are scoring at home: Opening Bell on Wall Street, check, Fenway, check, Yankee Stadium, check. The White House visit has not been scheduled yet, but it is anticipated for later this summer. In 2023, Hurley and his staff visited Citi Field and Giants training camp. No word on any of that yet.

“You spend so much time working and recruiting and getting your team ready for next season,” Hurley said. “These are really the only moments you get to appreciate the accomplishments. This is the cool stuff you get to do, the parade, first pitch at Yankee Stadium, going to the White House. But then the work is waiting for you pretty quickly.”

This resource has been developed and implemented by voluntary staff across the University, as well as student leaders who have successfully navigated the transfer process.

The purpose of this website is to serve as a virtual resource for both prospective and accepted transfer students, with the intent of making the transfer process as transparent and easy to navigate as possible. 

Feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, or comments.

Dan Hurley, UConn agree to new six-year, $50 million contract as Huskies chase third straight NCAA title

Hurley's deal averages out to $8.3 million annually.

NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament   - National Championship - Purdue v Connecticut

Dan Hurley has officially agreed to a new contract with UConn that is worth $50 million over six years, the school announced Monday.

As the Huskies gear up to chase a third consecutive national title in the 2024-25 season, Hurley's new deal, which averages out to $8.3 million annually, would leave him just behind Bill Self of Kansas , the highest-paid coach in college basketball after earning over $9 million in total compensation in 2023-24 

The new contract also comes amid an offseason that saw Hurley emerge as a candidate for the Los Angeles Lakers coaching vacancy.

The Lakers offered Hurley $70 million over six years, but he turned them down to stay with a UConn program that he's established as the class of college basketball. Hurley's new deal with UConn was in place prior to his discussions with the Lakers. 

"One of the biggest misnomers that I've seen, and I've had a chance to see some things [in the media], is this was a leverage play," he told CBS Sports' Matt Norlander in June  after turning down the NBA opportunity. "It was a zero leverage play. Zero. I mean, zero. How much more leverage do I need? We just won back-to-back championships. I didn't need leverage and I wouldn't have tortured myself if there wasn't some strong, like, should I do this? I thought it through. I wanted to give it great consideration. It has nothing to do with improving my position here."

The last school to win three consecutive national titles was UCLA , which won seven straight under John Wooden from 1967-73. Since then, the only coaches to win back-to-back titles are Hurley, Billy Donovan ( Florida ) and Mike Krzyzewski ( Duke ).

Achieving the three-peat will require Hurley to successfully replace four starters from a team that finished 37-3. Veteran forward Alex Karaban , a mainstay in the lineup over the past two seasons, will be joined by a mix of returning reserves, transfers and three true freshmen in the 2024-25 season.

Hurley ranked No. 7 nationally in compensation during the 2023-24 season, per USA Today's database  of college basketball coaching salaries.

Hurley's base salary in 2024-25 will be $400,000, but he will receive $6.375 million in "additional compensation for speaking, consulting and media obligations" which will increase each year through the term of the contract. Hurley will also be paid a retention bonus of $1 million per year through 2029-30, according to UConn.

UConn, coach Dan Hurley agree to new 6-year, $50 million contract

Connecticut Huskies head coach Dan Hurley reacts during the Men's NCAA national championship game against the Purdue Boilermakers at State Farm Stadium in Glendale on April 8, 2024.

UConn and coach Dan Hurley, who declined an offer from the Los Angeles Lakers in June, agreed to a new six-year, $50 million contract, the school announced Monday.

The deal runs through the 2029-30 season and includes performance-based incentives.

“It’s an honor to coach basketball at UConn and to represent this world-class institution and the great state of Connecticut,” Hurley said in a statement. “We are extremely proud of the championship program that we have rebuilt for our supporters and fans. We will continue to obsessively pursue championships and historic success, while continuing to develop great young men.”

Hurley led the Huskies to back-to-back national championships in 2023 and 2024 after being hired in 2018. Under his leadership, UConn has reached four NCAA Tournaments and has a 141-58 record across six seasons.

In mid-June, Hurley declined a six-year, $70 million coaching contract offer from the Lakers that would have made him one of the NBA ’s six highest-paid coaches. Instead, Hurley returned to UConn to pursue a third straight national championship — a feat that has only been accomplished once in NCAA men’s basketball history, when UCLA under John Wooden won seven consecutive titles from 1967 to 1973.

The Lakers went on to hire JJ Redick as coach .

With his new deal, Hurley will receive a base salary of $400,000 annually and additional compensation for speaking, consulting and media obligations that escalate each year through the contract term. The additional compensation begins at $6.375 million for the 2024-25 season.  Hurley will also receive a retention bonus of $1 million per year.
