St. John's is a horrible job right now. The president of the university,as opposed to the AD, wanted Lavin (and by extension Whitesell) and the AD out and Mullen in as coach four years ago. There was no reason for the president to be involved in decisions like that, except if there is a major scandal taking place at the school, and there was not one. Until he is gone it is a place to stay away from for anyone like Hurley.
Unless St. John's is going to offer in the words of Nate Oats, stupid money, he should stay at Iona. There is a history of other successful coaches int the New York City area moving to St. John's and failing. He is in a great spot at Iona right now and the stupid money will most likely come to him from some place else.
