Thad Matta Out As Ohio State Coach

Thad Matta Out As Ohio State Coach”

In a surprise move, Ohio State has chose to part ways with head coach Thad Matta after 13 seasons. Ohio State isn't anywhere near the top of the Big Ten as Matta exits.

"I went through a year where I couldn't walk", Matta told Eleven Warriors.

FILE - In this March 8, 2017, file photo, Ohio State head coach Thad Matta gestures during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Big Ten tournament against Rutgers, in Washington.

Matta took over as Ohio State's coach in 2004, and has won five Big Ten regular season titles, four Big Ten tournament championships, and played in two NCAA Championship games.

Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said at Monday's press conference that the two had a "mutual understanding that it was time for a leadership change" with the basketball program. He coaches a plodding but efficient offense and will come up in big-name coaching searches for as long as he remains at Butler. "It's the things that I went through a year where I couldn't walk, I couldn't take my shoes off after a game, I couldn't take my trousers off after a game".

The leak about PlayStation Plus June 2017 games lineup also suggests that both of these games will be available on PlayStation4. However, a recent leak from the PlayStation Turkey account has revealed it ahead of its official time.

"My whole focus right now is trying to get health, that's all I am concerned about", Matta said.

Ohio State will uphold Matta's final three years of his contract.

"Sometimes the lights all shining on me", Matta said. Xavier has won at least 21 games in seven of those seasons and 23 or more in six campaigns. A national search for Matta's replacement will begin immediately.

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 I think the last thing that I hope I'm always remembered for is that we always did it the right way.

Last season was the only time he failed to reach 20 wins in his career. "He has helped me in so many ways as a player and a young man".
