We will know in the next 24 hours if former Ohio State coach Thad Matta will be the next head coach of the Georgia men's basketball, multiple sources tell Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

The Associated Press reported Matta interviewed for the vacancy on Monday. Matta's brother Greg, who coaches 90 minutes from Georgia's campus, told the AP that coaching is in Matta's blood and he's been itching to return since taking last season off.

Matta will apparently decide in the next 24 hours. After nixing a potential offer from Mississippi, Matta has also been linked to Pittsburgh's vacancy.

Georgia fired head coach fired Mark Fox after nine seasons. The Bulldogs finished 18-15 in the 2017-18 season.
