Mark Turgeon 'Leaning Towards' Maryland Basketball Coaching Job, According To Report

Texas A&M Aggies basketball coach Mark Turgeon is reportedly very interested in replacing Gary Williams as Maryland Terrapins coach, according to FOX Sports' Jeff Goodman. Goodman also reports Turgeon will likely decide Monday whether he'll leave College Station for College Park or not.

Maryland has been "making a run" at the former Kansas Jayhawks point guard since at least Monday morning, according to reports.

Turgeon has coached Texas A&M since 2007, leading the Aggies to a 97-40 record including four straight NCAA Tournament appearances and three March Madness wins. He came from Wichita State, where he'd achieved a 2006 Sweet Sixteen and held a 128-90 record after seven seasons. He's also coached at Jacksonville State and held assistant positions with the Philadelphia 76ers, Oregon Ducks and his alma mater.
