Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon has agreed to take over at Maryland, calling it a “great opportunity.”

Turgeon went 97-40 in four seasons in College Station en route to leading them to four NCAA Tournament appearances and went 24-9 this past season, losing to Florida State in the second round.

The Terrapins had been looking for a coach since Gary Williams retired last Friday after recording a school-record 461 wins in his 22 seasons in College Park. Maryland went 19-14 last season and didn’t make the postseason.

Turgeon spent seven years at Wichita State before joining Texas A&M and has compiled a 225-130 record career.
