Thad Matta’s streak of 20-win seasons has officially come to an end.
Ohio State finished its 2016-17 season with just a 17-15 record and did not make the NIT. For the first time in his 17 seasons as a head coach, Matta did not reach at least 20 wins. Matta just finished his 13th year in Columbus as head coach of the Buckeyes.
Listed below is Matta's head coaching history:
Matta is 439–154 (.740 winning percentage) in his head coaching career and 337–123 (.733) in his 13 years at Ohio State.
The Buckeyes missed the NCAA tournament for the second-straight season this year. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith already confirmed Matta would return next year for a 14th season at the helm.
The winningest coach in Ohio State basketball history will have to try and start a new streak.
