COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State University says Thad Matta will no longer be the head men’s basketball coach.

Matta was head coach for the Buckeyes for 13 seasons.

He is the school's all-time leader in wins (337) and games coached (460).

Matta's teams also won five regular-season Big Ten titles and four league tournament crowns, the most championships of any league coach over the last 13 seasons.

A national search for the next Ohio State head coach will begin immediately.
