    Not only has he shown no interest in leaving Gonzaga but he also recruits the best of the best. Maryland also has its work cut out for them. I really don't see how much of an upgrade they are over Gonzaga, Arizona, Notre Dame, etc.



    Agreed on Tubby. I think he might listen, but Minnesota fans are finding out what Kentucky fans already knew about Tubby. He has to recruit "his" type of players to be successful, ignores the AAU circuit, the game is starting to pass him by, and it is always his players fault because they don't execute.

    Come to think of it, that sounds like Gary Williams. I'd pull for Tubby because he is a likable person and would be going against Ole Roy and Coach K twice a year, but I think he's a short term hire who would really set Maryland back.
    Minnesota is a low stress program. They allow him to recruit "his type of player". They aren't a program that is driven by championship dreams. He has already been in the pressure cooker and I think he enjoys being out of it.

    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."

    COLLEGE STATION — Texas A&M athletic director Bill Byrne's list of basketball coaching candidates appears to be down to two - Murray State's Billy Kennedy and Northern Iowa's Ben Jacobson - after former Rockets coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy apparently said no thanks Friday.

    Pearl may end up in the NBA's D-League: Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the D-League's Maine Red Claws are "courting" Pearl for their head-coaching job.
