There's no possible way... is there?

If he wants to be near his dad I could see it. Someone like him has seen first hand what’s possible at Nebraska, and the fan support in a way someone who has never coached against Nebraska has not. It may not be as crazy as it sounds. He’s a midwestern guy and may want to get back to the midwest

Interesting spin on the Nebraska perspective.  I didn't even think about that!

My in-laws worked in the Maryland AD for years and are still very connected.  The general view is that people like Turgeon but feel Maryland is deserving of a “better” coach. It reminds me of the relationship Mark Richt had with Georgia. If Nebraska were to offer, Maryland would not exactly fight to keep him. However, I have no clue as to Turgeon’s interest. 

 

On another note, a close friend of mine has a very close connection with Duke and shared the following. Evidently, once a year the Duke alumni newsletter examines the current basketball coaching staff during the season and identifies specific schools where each assistant coach could become a HC. The January 2019 newsletter listed Nebraska as one of five schools were Jon Scheyer could land as HC. At the time of publication, Miles had the team playing well; and the newsletter noted Scheyer to Nebraska would only occur if Miles was fired while, alternatively, the other schools were already on the brink of a coaching transition. The newsletter does not indicate whether Coach K had any input but these projections are not based on idle speculation.

WTF Most of those names aren't even good enough to be called "B" coaches. If you're going to go with them, you might as well throw all 30 names in a hat and draw one out!!

Dude, calm down. These are 30 coaches to watch for any jobs, anywhere, not only Nebraska.

Probably as much as Mark Richt's interest in going back to his home state of Nebraska.

Interesting and from the outside, a good analogy. That name is quite intriguing to me.

Was thinking about when Collier left. Don’t want him here now but a Husker Hoops Central blast from the past (and a name that I remember talking about on this board back in 2005-2006) Scott Spinelli

The Turgeon name came from someone I consider very credible who thinks Moose has him at the top of his list.

 

As detailed above, Turgeon isn't disliked at Maryland but he isn't beloved, either. He's been there long enough where it might be time to think about moving on, depending how this season ends.

 

His family is in Nebraska (Lincoln) - playing ball at KU - familiarity with NU and how he went WAY out of his way last week at the presser to praise Miles and Nebraska has me thinking there's a little smoke to it.

 

Also, according to the person who told me this, Nebraska could easily pay more than Maryland could and the UNL athletic department is in much better shape than Maryland currently is.

 

Again, I don't think this happens. But I think there ARE some wings to it.

It may not happen, but stranger things have happened.  This is also interesting because there is a connection here as Moos was AD for Oregon starting in 1995, while Mark was assistant for the Ducks.  This would be a fantastic hire.

that recruiting base is such a big deal for this state. weak high school participation in a low population state is toxic. Add to that we have a jesuit hoops school competitor in the largest city making it even harder. 

 

So much of our inability to build comes down to that. I still assume that this is the single biggest deterrent to getting a good coach here. You almost have to recruit like a football coach--without the football resources--to be successful at NU.

No, I’m not about to ask my parents to see if they can find out anything, but they sit right next to his parents at the Women’s games.

Not that it matters, but it's his dad and step-mom.

Agree with this, thinking whomever is coach here needs to pluck kids from the KC metro given the distance.  KU and KSU can't take them all can they?

If we did decide to go with Otzelberger at least we can continue the trend of our coach having a great friendship with McDermott. (sarcasm)

They really left him twisting in the wind a bit the  last time on his contract extension and in some regards that's reflected in his $350,000.

They'd really have to crater or he'd have to really want to be by family and he's really want to be paid more because he's not going to have a better basketball setup than he has at Maryland where you're up to you eyeballs in good area players and no one really tracking where all that Under Armor money goes.
