In his four years, Turgeon has a 114-59 record as the Terrapins head coach and has coached Maryland to two NCAA Tournament appearances in a row (2015 ,2016) and three postseason tournaments overall. In the 2016 NCAA Tournament, Turgeon led his team to the Sweet Sixteen as a No. 5 seed.
Turgeon also has 14 consecutive winning-seasons, which dates back to almost a decade.
Turgeon came to Maryland after coaching Texas A&M to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances, signing a contract with the Terrapins worth more than $2.1 million per year. His extension would give him a pay raise, according to Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun.
