Turgeon Leaving Aggies for Terps

From WTAW.com:

“Texas A&M University men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon has accepted the head coaching job at the University of Maryland.  From A&M’s athletic department website, Turgeon stated:

“I accepted the Maryland job earlier tonight. It was just too good an offer for me to pass on. The thing that made it the most difficult was the players. Those guys have done everything I’ve asked for four years and we’ve had a great ride. (Director of Athletics) Bill Byrne has been real good to me too. Those are the hardest parts of the whole thing. It’s been a tough day. I’ve been back and forth many times. I just felt like Maryland was a great opportunity for me and my family.”
