The Buckeyes Officially Name Chris Holtmann as Chief Basketball Coach

On Friday, Chris Holtmann was named officially as the fourteenth chief coach of Ohio State. Thad Matta, the previous coach, departed on Monday following thirteen seasons in charge.

Holtmann has been signed for eight years, and will earn a salary of roughly three million dollars per year. A press release from the university stated that the contract details are yet to be fully decided, and will be announced in the near future. Holtmann is set to be introduced officially at a media conference on Monday at 11:00, at the Value City Arena.

Gene Smith, Athletic Director for the Buckeyes, made a statement saying that Holtmann is a man of integrity and a proven winner, who is enthusiastic about the task in front of him.

Forty-five year old Holtmann arrives at the Buckeyes following a few seasons as the chief coach for Butler. During that time with the Bulldogs, he achieved a record of 70--31 and guided his team through the NCAA tournament each year.
