With Monday’s surprise announcement that Thad Matta would no longer be Ohio State’s basketball coach, many former Buckeyes took to social media to share their thoughts about the winningest coach in program history.

Matta took over as Ohio State’s coach in 2004, and has won five Big Ten regular season titles, four Big Ten tournament championships, and played in two NCAA Championship games. He was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year three times, most recently in 2010.

His roster of former players have gone on to become stars in the NBA and in professional leagues around the world, and his coaching tree is one of the most prolific in college basketball.

We will continue to update this list as more reactions come in.
