Chris Holtmann Is Done With Ohio State

Ohio State has been a laughingstock of the college basketball world the past two seasons, and on Wednesday, the man in charge of the entire thing was let go. 

Jeff Goodman states, "Ohio State has parted ways with Chris Holtmann, a source told The Field of 68." 

Holtmann coached the Buckeyes for seven seasons, failed to reach the tournament in 2023, and was on his way to not reaching it again this season.

Holtmann didn't reach the tournament in 2020 due to it being canceled because of COVID-19, but he would've been eligible that season for the dance and would've been one of the higher seeds. 

Ohio State's 2021 season was Holtmann's best, with the program going 21-10, losing to Illinois in the Big Ten title game, getting a two-seed in March Madness but bouncing in the first round to 15-seed Oral Roberts. 

Ohio State basketball has been on a downhill slide since the start of 2023, and Ohio State has yet to win a true away game since January of 2023.  

Ohio State's loss on the road to Wisconsin Tuesday night was the 16th straight loss on the road for the Buckeyes, and Ohio State couldn't wait to keep Holtmann around any longer. 

The program, which once was very respectable, has now been forgotten around the college basketball world and even by Ohio State fans. 

Everyone knows Ohio State is a football school, but Buckeye hoops also have a massive place in many fans' hearts, and all they want to do is see their team get back to the good days when Thad Matta was taking the team to the final fours and deep tournament runs.
