Dave Dickerson to Dunk City?

Buckeye men’s basketball coach Thad Matta has one of the best coaching staffs in the United States, which–of course–has its advantages, but also creates a lot of drama in the offseason.

Ohio State video coordinator Greg Paulus, for instance, could be leaving to take an assistant’s job at Northwestern under new Wildcats head coach Chris Collins.

CBS’s Jeff Goodman has linked New Jersey native Chris Jent to the open position at Rutgers.

Shooting for Jent
And OSU associate head coach Dave Dickerson has been linked to two separate jobs.

At first making the list of finalists at Old Dominion (a job since taken by Jeff Jones), Dickerson now finds himself being named in connection to Florida Golf Coast.

The Naples News notes that, “FGCU junior Nate Hicks committed to Dickerson at Tulane before he was fired.”

  1. Matta has had many coaches leave for better positions before and always seems to be able to replace them with other good coaches. So either that indicates that talented people with aspirations to be a head coach want to be at a successful program to learn their craft or Matta is good teacher of how to win. Either way, it is a good problem to have.

    1. Agreed. One thing I’ve heard about Matta is he doesn’t compartmentalize what he has his assistants do, so they end up very prepared for a future head coaching gig. Elsewhere, assistants are given a very specific list of duties or a very definitive specialization, so they don’t get the same overall preparation.

  2. Just desire to say your article is as astounding.
