Here’s what’s in Maryland men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon’s $17 million contract extension

After weeks of uncertainty, Maryland and men’s basketball coach Mark Turgeon officially have a new deal.

Turgeon, who had two years remaining on his previous contract, signed a three-year extension through 2025-26, the school announced Wednesday night. It’s the 56-year-old’s second extension with the Terps after he originally signed an eight-year deal in 2011 to succeed Hall of Fame coach Gary Williams.

According to a copy of the contract obtained by The Baltimore Sun through a public records request, Turgeon will receive an annual base salary of $750,000 — but the actual value of the deal is worth roughly $17 million over the next five years.
