From the Washington Post:
“I went to my first Kentucky Derby,” Brown told ESPN 980’s Kevin Sheehan on Tuesday. “I got invited, my wife and I went and I met Kevin Plank. And I had played golf with him and Gary before, and we were out just kind of visiting. And he kind of told me Sean Miller was gonna be the next coach of Maryland. And I said you guys ought to interview Mark Turgeon. I said I know he’s happy at A&M, but he wants to go somewhere where maybe he has a better chance of winning a national championship.
“And the next night Mark and I visited, and they were coming to Pittsburgh to see him. So it worked out great. I think when we talked about it, it wasn’t so much what Texas A&M didn’t offer. It was what Maryland represented: being in the ACC, they’ve already won a national championship, they’re in an area that you can recruit great kids, and I think the facilities are as good as any. So this is a perfect opportunity for Mark to go forward.”
That’s an interesting addition to the timeline, anyhow. Brown, as you might guess, said he’s already talked to Turgeon about coming down from Philly to visit College Park, and that Turgeon was “a great choice” for Maryland.
