Saturday night, Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne slapped down rumors that Arizona coach Sean Miller would leave for the same position at Maryland by announcing that Miller would be staying in Tucson. Sunday brings Maryland's two new targets: Butler coach Brad Stevens and Notre Dame coach Mike Brey.
According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Anderson's next likely target will be Butler's Brad Stevens, who is fresh off consecutive national championship game appearances. Stevens was wooed a year ago, notably by Oregon, but stayed in his native Indiana. If Stevens says no then Maryland native Mike Brey of Notre Dame and Mark Turgeon of Texas A&M are expected to be next on the list.
However, Goodman additionally reported that Stevens has since turned down Maryland.
That means that what Washington Post's Steve Yanda is reporting — that Maryland has a meeting with Brey on Sunday — might mean a bit more ... even though Testudo Times notes that Brey might be a longshot. It's a fun time to be a Maryland basketball fan, no doubt.
