McDermott staying at Creighton, not taking job at Ohio State

McDermott staying at Creighton, not taking job at Ohio State

Ohio State reportedly showed interest in McDermott, but he vowed to stay at Creighton. A source told CBS Sports early Thursday that McDermott-to-Ohio State was "no slam dunk".

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Smith will meet with current Golden State Warriors assistant coach, and former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, Mike Brown at some point. McDermott's subsequent tweet confirmed as much. "Dana Altman and Greg McDermott are outstanding coaches who recruit, retain, develop and graduate young men who also have properly represented the mission of Creighton University".

ESPN first reported Wednesday night that McDermott met with Ohio State officials on Wednesday and was offered the job, which opened Monday when Thad Matta resigned.




The timing of Ohio State's move meant a high-profile coaching vacancy at a rare time in the sport's offseason.

The 52-year-old McDermott has spent the past seven seasons at Creighton, where his team finished 25-10 last season and qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the fourth time during his time at the school. "I am thankful for the time and friendship I have shared with both of them, and look forward to many more years with Coach McDermott at Creighton".
