Report: Fred Hoiberg has “no interest” in Ohio State job

Thad Matta and Ohio State have decided to part ways. In a presser. the coach thanks everyone for the "greatest 13 years" of his life, looks at his legacy and gives an update on his health.

Some Bulls fans will not be happy to hear this.

And it may be moot anyway, as NBC’s College Basketball Talk is reporting Creighton head coach Greg McDermott has been offered the job.

But for the record, while Bulls’ coach Fred Hoiberg’s name has been linked to the Ohio State job, he doesn’t want it, reports Vincent Goodwill of

But as of Wednesday evening, senior Bulls officials weren’t aware of Ohio State’s apparent interest, and sources tell that Hoiberg has “no interest” in the position.

Hoiberg also released this statement to the Chicago Tribune:

“Anytime your name is associated with a great job, it’s an honor. But I’m head coach of the Bulls and have no intention of leaving.”

So that’s that.

Just know that every time a major college opening comes up the names of Hoiberg and Boston’s Brad Stevens will come up. That doesn’t mean they have any interest in taking the job.
