The University of Maryland announced that they have hired Mark Turgeon as their new head basketball coach. But the first chance for the fans and the media to get to know Turgeon will be on Wednesday, when Maryland will host their introductory press conference at noon. We're not sure if it will be open to the public like the Gary Williams retirement presser was, but we will get that information on to you as soon as it is available.
Turgeon will have a very buys 27 or so hours before the press conference. He will reportedly fly back to Maryland this morning after meeting with his Texas A&M team last night. He will most likely meet with the Maryland team sometime this morning or early afternoon. He will also meet with the assistant coaches sometime today and try to solidify the coaching staff that will be joining him on the Maryland sideline this season and beyond. When we have any information about how those meetings go or the results of them, we will pass it along to you.
