It probably registered a small blip on the national basketball scene, but for many "worry wart" Terps basketball fans who have an almost fully bloomed deep affection for Coach Turgeon, this was really big news.
The worries appear to be substantially over - Bill Self just had his contract extended through 2021-2022 (and 3.8 Mil per season + incentives) with Kansas University. A heavy sigh of relief is being heard from every Terps fan that has speculated that the only way our beloved Turge would leave the Terps perch is if Self were to jump to the NBA.
Judging from Self's comments in the CBSsports article, he is not going anywhere anytime soon. Which suits us Terps fans just fine. Congratulations Coach Self - you may have just preserved what we consider our #TerpNation DMV National treasure!
