New Maryland Basketball Coach Mark Turgeon's Staff Reportedly Includes Bino Ranson, But Not Robert Ehsan

New Maryland basketball coach Mark Turgeon has spent the last week trying to hold onto recruits and finalize his coaching staff. The first task did not work out well for him, as all three of Maryland's incoming recruits asked and received releases from their commitments. The second task is winding down, and it has been a mixed bag.

CSN's Chick Hernandez is reporting that Bino Ranson, a key assistant to Gary Williams that helped land top recruit Nick Faust before Williams' retirement, is staying aboard as part of Turgeon's staff. However, Robert Ehsan, the young assistant that has excellent ties to the D.C. area, probably will not.

Sources close to Terps hoops program tell me Mark Turgeon will keep Bino Ranson as an assistant. Rob Eshan is out. Eshan expected to chat with Virginia Tech shortly.    

Two days ago, the Washington Post reported that Ehsan was being pursued by Hokies coach Seth Greenberg. His loss may make Turgeon's goal of keeping homegrown talent in the state more difficult. However, the return of Ranson could help the Terps keep Faust. Faust said earlier that while he has asked to reopen his recruitment, Maryland remains an option for him.
