Texas A&M's search to replace Mark Turgeon has led to school officials reaching out to Jeff Van Gundy.
It's unclear whether Van Gundy, now an analyst with ESPN, would be interested in coaching college basketball, but a source told CBSSports.com that Texas A&M athetic director Bill Byrne felt it was worth his while to at least call and check considering Van Gundy lives in Houston. Meantime, the Fort Worth Star Telegram is reporting that Colorado's Tad Boyle has turned down the opportunity to replace Turgeon. According to the report, Boyle was Byrne's first choice once it became obvious that Buzz Williams was not a realistic option because of his contract situation at Marquette.
Where Texas A&M turns next is unclear.
The possibilities -- according to sources and various reports -- include Northern Iowa's Ben Jacobson, Murray State's Billy Kennedy, Louisiana Lafayette's Bob Marlin and Scott Spinelli, Turgeon's top assistant at Texas A&M. If Spinelli doesn't get the job, he's expected to join Turgeon at Maryland.
