I don't think anyone can look at this as a bad hire.

He is a good coach and did a good job in a tough basketball conference and he did it at a school that is all about football.

So, now he is coming to a school that mostly all about basketball.

Good point, should help us retain our recruits.

I love that Turgeon specifically mentioned to one of the A&M beat writers after his meeting with the players that he's so excited about all the great players in the MD area.

Confirmation from the Washington Post:

Said former Maryland coach Lefty Driesell, who coached against Turgeon when Driesell was at Georgia State and Turgeon was at Jacksonville State: “He’s a great young man, a great person and an excellent coach. I coached against his teams at Jacksonville State; they were in our league. And I’ve seen his teams on TV.

“He’ll do a good job, I’m sure. He ran the pick-and-roll really well. And his teams played hard. I liked their offense, and they played good defense.

“He’s a good coach that would be an excellent choice, in my opinion. The Maryland people would really like him.”

I won't pretend to be that knowledgeable about him, but it does seem like a good hire. Still a bit of a let-down though, given that it seemed like Miller was in the bag and guys like Wright and Dixon were strongly interested in the job.
