Mark Turgeon and Maryland struck gold in the transfer portal. More big moves could still be coming. | ANALYSIS

In the week after the Maryland men’s basketball team’s season-ending loss to Alabama in the Round of 32 in the NCAA tournament, it was quiet in College Park, even with speculation rising regarding coach Mark Turgeon’s contract status.

With just two years remaining on the deal, there was no public acknowledgment from athletic director Damon Evans on the status of an extension. But behind the scenes, the two sides have been reportedly finalizing an extension. The development surfaced Friday, and just one day later, the team secured commitments from former Georgetown center Qudus Wahab and former Rhode Island point guard Daron “Fatts” Russell, two experienced transfers who immediately shore up the weakest spots of a roster that at times struggled with the size and depth of the Big Ten Conference.
