Maryland Basketball Waits For Mark Turgeon's Decision

The Maryland Terrapins basketball team still does not have a new coach, despite earlier indications on Monday that Texas A&M Aggies head coach Mark Turgeon would be Gary Williams' successor. According to multiple reports, Turgeon is returning to Texas A&M, but has not yet made any decision on his future. Turgeon has not scheduled a meeting with his team, which may be an indication that he needs time to think this over.

Testudo Times, our Maryland blog, has some doubts about Turgeon coming east, but thinks it will still happen:

This is way too fuzzy to decipher anything strong out of it, but no contract signed yet isn't good. I still think this one gets done, but it ain't a done deal.

ESPN's Andy Katz reported earlier on Monday that Turgeon received a contract offer from Maryland, so the decision for him now is if he is comfortable giving up the Aggies to kick off the post-Gary Williams era in Maryland.
