In his 13 seasons at the helm of the Buckeye program, Thad Matta led Ohio State to five B1G regular-season championships, four B1G tournament titles and a pair of Final Fours.

As it was announced Tuesday Thad Matta’s tenure as head coach of Ohio State men’s basketball would be coming to an end, “thank yous” poured in across social media …

Thad Matta’s 13-year Ohio State resumé: 337-123 (.733), five B1G titles, four B1G tourney titles, 5 Sweet 16s, three Elite 8s, 2 Final Fours These stats aren't even the reason why you're still one of my favorite coaches til this day. Your enthusiasm, passion, knowledge, and humor are the reasons why I'm glad that I made the decision to become a buckeye when I was 17. Thanks for always be patient and accepting me for me. You helped me weed thru a lot of ups and down in order to be the player and man you knew I could become. I'll forever love you for that and you'll always be a legend and great man in my book. Cheers to Thad Matta, the great one! #GoBucks
