Just saw this on TT:
"Tim Brando was just on Sirius and dropped a bomb! He relayed that thru his "sources" Turgeon has communicated to Anderson that he is not at all happy with the forthcoming move to the Big 10 and that Turgeon has been communicating to fellow coaches that he did not sign up to coach in the Big 10 (that he only wants to be in the Big 12 or the ACC. Brando also said that Turgeon is growing concerned about recruiting local kids and continuing to try and lock down the DMV (stay at home movement) because they don't want to play in the Big 10. Brando stated Turgeon is also very concerned about how the move has already affected recruiting and he has been trying to use Victor Oladipo as a selling point to local recruits, but there not buying it and he knows its going to have a dramatic impact on recruiting in the future. Brando even went so far as to say that Turgeon has told Anderson he is going to look at "his options" when the season ends and that besides potentially looking at other opportunities, he might go to UNC and work under Roy Williams.
Needless to say, I am not happy typing this and it literally floored me! I don't think anyone has heard a peep that Turge was anything but happy in College Park and I am assuming the move to the Big 10 was discussed at length with him before it happened. It all just seems to have come out of nowhere (but these things typically do).
Does Brando have an axe to grind with UMD? Any dots to connect there? Again, I could not have been more floored to hear this."
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
I stopped reading after "Just saw this on TT:"
"Turgeon has 3 key guys on current roster - Allen, Dez, and Jake - that have not improved." -Orioleterp
I'm gonna go ahead and assume this is 100% true.
So not only did you steal a post from another site, you stole a ridiculous post from another site.
Charmcity says this is 110% true so
Which part is ridiculous? Did he make up what Brando said?
I used to work with his brother, so he probably told Tim to try to piss me off. Except that wouldn't really piss me off, so it's just another Brando screw up.
Lol did u just say turge is considering quitting md to go be deputy dog's assistant? Ok
LOL he's going to give up a $2M/yr job to go be an assistant? After two years? LOL.
Lol at any head coach anywhere leaving to become an assistant coach because the team moved to a better conference!
Okay fine. Ridiculous to steal the post and Brando's info is ridiculous. Fair?
Waiting for Bleacher Report to confirm.
Literally every part is more ridiculous than the last.
yea im sure he's so pissed he's gonna walk away from 12m
so who is going to listen to the podcast?
i have heard from a few other people at UMD that he was trying to use the big 10 move as leverage for a raise....but no way is he walking away from his contract to be an assistant at UNC?
holy shit this isn't even a TerrapinTimes posts its a TestudoTimes post
"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
I don't like what is being said so I'm going to say that it is 100% false!
Trying to find the podcast.
Who is starting the coaching search thread? Has anyone texted Anderson to let him know?
I like what is being said so I'm going to say this is 100% true!
No, seriously. lololololol
This is my favorite part: "Turgeon has told Anderson he is going to look at "his options" when the season ends and that besides potentially looking at other opportunities, he might go to UNC and work under Roy Williams."
Oh yeah, cause the dude we owe $10M in the next 5 years is gonna just roll out to be Roy's assistant because he haz a recruiting sad. How stupid are people?
Look, Turge was not happy about the Big10 move at first, but he got over it. Anything beyond that is bullshit. Period.
