Mark Turgeon's tenure at Maryland is over, less than a month after the start of his 11th season at the helm.

Again, the Terrapins were struggling to reach their potential - although the abrupt change still came with a jolt, just eight games into the 2021-22 campaign.

"After a series of conversations with Coach Turgeon, we agreed that a coaching change was the best move for Coach Turgeon and for the Maryland men's basketball program," athletic director Damon Evans said in a statement. "He has dedicated over a decade of his life to the University of Maryland, and has coached with distinction and honor."
