Greg McDermott Reportedly Meets with Ohio State over Coaching Vacancy

Ohio State head coach Thad Matta center looks toward Ohio State guard C.J. Jackson, forward Andre Wesson and forward Marc Loving during a timeout in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game again

After Jent left the Cavs he became an assistant at Ohio State, where he worked for Thad Matta until 2013. In the Big Ten Tournament, Ohio State lost in the first round to Rutgers, the lowest-seeded team.

Matta's Ohio State teams reached the Final Four in 2007 and 2012. The Buckeyes were 17-15 last season and went to the NIT in 2015-16. Matta is the school's career leader in wins and games.

Interestingly enough, it was McDermott who preceded Hoiberg at Iowa State, coaching the Cyclones for four mostly unsuccessful seasons before Hoiberg jolted the program to life with four straight NCAA tournament appearances and back-to-back conference-tournament titles in the always-competitive Big 12. Ten Buckeyes were selected in the National Basketball Association draft: Greg Oden, Mike Conley and Daequan Cook in 2007; Kosta Koufos (2008); B.J. Mullens (2009); Evan Turner (2010); Jon Diebler (2011); Jared Sullinger (2012); Deshaun Thomas (2013); and D'Angelo Russell (2015).

Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg was also identified in multiple reports as a candidate, but he told the Chicago Tribune he has no intention of leaving that organization. "He has helped me in so many ways as a player and a young man".

WOWT 6 News has yet to confirm that an offer has been made but we can confirm that McDermott met with Ohio State officials. "The thing I'm most disappointed with is that we just haven't won as many games as I'd like", McDermott said.

"I think it's the right thing for our program at the right time", Smith said.
