Report: Chris Holtmann Hired as DePaul HC After Nearly 7 Seasons with Ohio State CBB

One month after his firing by Ohio State, men's basketball head coach Chris Holtmann is headed to DePaul.

Holtmann has agreed to a six-year deal to coach the Blue Devils, according to reports from The Athletic's Nicole Auerbach and ESPN's Jeff Borzello and Pete Thamel.

Ohio State fired Holtmann in February after the Buckeyes began the season with a 4-10 conference record.

Holtmann will replace Tony Stubblefield, who was fired in January after a 3-15 season start for DePaul.

After leading the Buckeyes to four NCAA Tournament appearances in his first six seasons, Holtmann will now attempt to bring DePaul back to the tournament for the first time since 2004.
