Turgeon was just starting his 11th season as the head coach at Maryland. He posted a 226-116 record during his time with the Terrapins and made five NCAA Tournaments.
His failure to advance far in NCAA Tournaments reportedly had him on the hot seat in past years.
For his career, Turgeon has a 476-275 record at Jacksonville State, Wichita State, Texas A&M and Maryland.
Danny Manning will serve as interim coach. Manning has a 78-111 record as a head coach with time spent at Tulane and Wake Forest.
