Former Maryland Basketball Player Hastily Calls Out Coach Mark Turgeon Amid Swirl Of Transfers

The Maryland men’s basketball program lost three players to transfer earlier this month, when guards Nick Faust and Roddy Peters and center Shaquille Cleare announced they would be departing from the College Park-based school. A report surfaced Wednesday that the Terrapins will be losing another player: rising junior guard Seth Allen. 

The report has been denied by Terrapins’ coach Mark Turgeon.

Turgeon, who has been the head man at Maryland for three seasons, began to catch some heat from the program’s supporters this past year. The Terps missed the NCAA Tournament for the third season in a row. Turgeon replaced legendary coach Gary Williams, who led Maryland to its lone NCAA title in 2002. 

Former Maryland basketball player Will Bowers, who played under Williams in the early 2000s, is apparently concerned about the state of the Terrapins’ program. 

Whether or not the Allen news is correct, Turgeon’s seat is getting a little warm.

Maryland has the potential to be a top-25 team in 2014-15 with the return of Dez Wells and the arrival of a top-10 recruiting class, led by McDonald’s All-American Romelo Trimble. The Terps will be playing in the Big Ten for the first season following their departure from the ACC. An NCAA Tournament appearance, at the very least, is likely needed.
