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

The Maryland basketball coaching search may finally reach its conclusion on Monday. Mark Turgeon, currently the coach at Texas A&M, will make his decision later Monday, according to a report by FOX Sports' Jeff Goodman. As of right now, Goodman reports that he is leaning towards accepting it.

Sources told FOXSports.com Mark Turgeon is leaning towards accepting Maryland job - although it looked that way with Sean Miller as well.    

Turgeon has spent the last four years in College Station, compiling a 249-158 record and leading his team to the NCAA Tournament all four times. However, he has lost in the first or second round in each of those four seasons. Prior to that, Turgeon spent seven seasons at Wichita State, going 128-90 and reaching the Sweet 16 of the 2006 NCAA Tournament.

Turgeon, if he accepts, would replace Gary Williams. Sean Miller, Mike Brey, Jay Wright and Brad Stevens have all reportedly turned down the job.
