Canisius College on Tuesday named John J. Hurley as the institution's next president; he will become the second Hurley brother to lead a Roman Catholic college in Buffalo. Hurley is currently the college’s executive vice president and vice president for college relations and will be the first lay president at Canisius. Paul Hurley, one of his brothers, is president of nearby Trocaire College. While there are and have been in the past other sibling presidents, the Hurley family may have the potential for a wider reach than most. Another brother is Dan Hurley, assistant vice president for government and community relations at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University.
