Mr. Turgeon built an impressive resume, coaching at Texas A & M before moving to Maryland in 2011. In contrast I bounced around the country before landing in Baltimore. Despite my rootless ways, I retained a loyalty to KU basketball. And when fatherhood and the pressures of coaching Townsontowne recreational basketball teams descended upon me, I turned to the wisdom of Kansas basketball, a program that had produced such noteworthy coaches as Dean Smith at North Carolina, Adolph Rupp at Kentucky, Ralph Miller at Iowa and Oregon State. A lot my instruction, my sons tell me now, consisted of me screaming at the television as it showed college basketball games.
