Re: Billy G hired at Texas Tech ... Bruce Pearl to be fired this afternoon ...
Maryland has offered its basketball coaching job to Texas A&M's Mark Turgeon, Comcast SportsNet's Chick Hernandez has confirmed. Furthermore, Hernandez reports that Turgeon is meeting with his Aggies team tonight.
The offer to Turgeon was first reported by Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com. Goodman, who broke the news that Gary Williams was retiring, tweeted the following: "Sources told FOXSports.com Mark Turgeon is leaning towards accepting Maryland job - although it looked that way with Sean Miller as well."
"I have just been more than a little suspect of all the trades since the Willy (Scott Williamson) cash grab. That one left such a bad taste in my mouth that even a 1985 Dom Pérignon couldn't cleanse it." -- Creek14
