Yeah there was a time there where the fanbase was fairly hopeful with Turgeon. The way his teams finished was really what soured a lot of people deep down.
In the end, it could’ve been a lot worse than Turgeon. I don’t think it’s right to revise history as if he was some dumpster fire here. He wasn’t at all. Overall, a decent run. Then there’s that 2019 team that never got to finish but was playing amazing down the stretch.
But overall, my whole argument once I saw how his teams finished, was Maryland Basketball needed to aim higher.
Always thought he was a class act though. I remember feeling really bad deep down, turning on him. I heard the other day the reason is hasn’t gotten a coaching job is he’s staying in the DMV until his children are through high school in a few years.
