The University of Maryland confirmed Monday that Texas A&M Aggies basketball coach Mark Turgeon will be the new head coach of the Terrapin basketball program, replacing Gary Williams.
Maryland made the official announcement on their athletics website:
"We're thrilled to bring Mark to the University, where I'm sure he will continue to build on the great legacy and success of Maryland Basketball," said Anderson. "In Mark, we have brought one of the outstanding young coaches in the country, and one who has a proven record of achievement on and off the court. We couldn't be more excited."
Turgeon will be introduced at a news conference on Wednesday at noon in Heritage Hall at Comcast Center. Terms of the contract were not immediately released, though reports are being estimated around $2.5M/year.
Turgeon is 250-159 after 13 seasons overall as a head coach and worked as an assistant at Kansas under Larry Brown and at Oregon after that.
