Long-time Maryland men's basketball head coach Gary Williams announced his retirement from coaching on May 5, 2011.

Four days later, the Williams era officially ended when the school announced the signing of Texas A&M head coach Mark Turgeon.

Williams, 66, began his stint as the head basketball coach in 1989, and 22 seasons later, made the decision to step away. He will remain at Maryland (his alma mater) and serve as the school's special assistant to the athletic director.

In his career at UMD, Williams took the team to 14 NCAA tournament appearances, two trips to the Final Four and a National Championship in 2002. Maryland failed to make both the NCAA and NIT tournaments this past season with a 19-14 record, but Gary finished his stint with a 461-252 overall record.

What will Turgeon bring to the table for the Terps in 2011?
