    Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon has accepted a job at Maryland.

    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 with the Aggies, leading them to four consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament. They 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 week after recording a school-record 461 wins over 22 seasons. They went 19-14 last season and didn't make the postseason.

    Turgeon spent seven years at Wichita State before joining Texas A&M, compiling a 128-90 record with the Shockers.

    Texas A&M announced Turgeon's departure Monday night.
