I've spent a good portion of the last few years listing my complaints about Turgeon... I just don't love his style of play.
That said, I've always recognized there are multiple ways to win... I appreciate that he's put MD back on solid ground. He's a quality recruiter. He's put together a good staff.
While I don't love him in-game, his overall results (not just at MD) point to him being a Top 25 Head Coach imo.
He is signed through 2022-23.
That's 5 full seasons after this one.
It's really hard for me to envision a scenario where MD would replace him before the end of '19-'20.
That said, I think by the end of that '19-'20 season (including this year, 3 years) he needs to have accomplished something like this during that period:
or 2 S16s
or 1 Regular Season Big Ten Title, & 1 S16
or 1 Big Ten Conference Title, & 1 S16
or 3 NCAATs, 75 wins, 3 Top 25s at Year End
That is a bar that should be reached.
If he does that the next 3 years (combined with what has occurred the last 3 years); Maryland won't be back to being 'elite', but the program will have had a 6 year run ('14-'15 through '19-'20) of consistently positive results.
It'd be fair to ask for more of him going forward, but he will have earned the right to continue on through the next three years of his current contract ('22-'23).
If this and the next two years through the end of '19-'20 don't have MD reaching the bar listed above; I think MD would be forced to move on.
Some might be ready to turn the page now. That isn't happening.
Some might think he only deserves through next year... and I see that point, but I can't see MD making a move with 4 full years left on his contract (after next year).
So.. the way I see it... he has all of this year, all of next, and all of '19-'20.
MD can be really good next year. He needs to capitalize on that imo.
Guards: Morsell, Huerter, Cowan, Wiley, Ayala
Wings: Jackson, Wiggins,
Bigs: Fernando, Smith, Bender, Tomaic
Maybe you lose Jackson. Maybe you lose Fernando. Maybe you add more to the '18 Class... but that's a pretty good team talent wise currently.
