Mark Turgeon’s University of Maryland coaching career has been very average. Compared to the Gary Williams era, Mark Turgeon’s coaching stint at the Comcast Center (Xfinity) has been very uneventful in terms of team success. Entering his fourth year, it seems like Turgeon’s Terps have been handed a reasonable expectation at the beginning of each season. However, every year it seems as if Turgeon falls one or two steps short of the goals.
This was supposed to be the year that Turgeon got over the hump.
This year, Turgeon was planning to have a top ten recruiting class while still keeping his core from the year before. With no one (expect John Auslander) to leave, everything seemed fine within the organization.
Then Nick Faust left…
then Roddy Peters…
then Shaq Cleare…
then Charles Mitchell..
then Seth Allen…
Yes Mark. They’re gone.
The departures have increased the immediate pressure for the new recruits to succeed.
This season’s expectations have already dwindled, and the Terps haven’t even set foot on the court this season. This Maryland fanbase deserves better, but will it be in the form of a better Mark Turgeon? Or will this fan base get a little too agitated and try to find another coach?
Lets analyze why they should get rid of Turgeon.
