Thad Matta: Ohio State and coach splitting up after 13 seasons


His teams won at least 20 games in 12-consecutive seasons (2005-2016), also an Ohio State record.

Shortly after Noon, on Monday, June 6th, it was announced that Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, and basketball head coach Thad Matta would hold a joint press conference. Matta has coached the Buckeyes for 13 seasons and has appeared in two Final Fours with the program. That said, Williams built Marquette into a Big East power and took Virginia Tech to the NCAA tournament last season. "Lately it occurs to me what a long, odd trip it's been". Last year's team missed the NCAA tournament after finishing 17-15. Smith said a national search for his replacement will begin immediately, and Matta will participate in the search.

Ohio State is generally considered the favorite to land the 6-foot-6, 290-pound prospect, but he did once name Clemson his leader in the recent past. "And so we started talking about that on Friday, which was three months or so after that meeting we had".

During the tournament, Smith said Matta's job was secure. "Recruiting is a major part of it, and we weren't winning the recruiting battles", Smith said. Matta got his first head coaching job was at Butler in 2000 where he stayed one year before going to Xavier from 2001-2004. The back pain the surgery was supposed to correct hasn't dissipated, either; he still needs help doing things as simple as putting on his shoes.
