Chris Holtmann Takes DePaul Head Coaching Job

Chris Holtmann Takes DePaul Head Coaching Job

Chris Holtmann just signed a 6-year deal to be the new head coach at DePaul! Apparently, they offered him a sweet package, remembering how good he was back when he coached at Butler in the Big East.

At Ohio State, things were pretty good for Holtmann for a while. Even though they let him go last month, he took the Buckeyes to the NCAA tournament four years in a row, and they were even a really high seed in 2021. His very first year was amazing, with a 25-9 record, and they won an NCAA tournament game each of his first two years as coach. They might have lost early in the tournament a couple times, but hey, making it that far is pretty good!

Before Ohio State, Holtmann did great things at Butler too, taking them to the NCAA tournament three years in a row. He started out as an assistant coach at a smaller school and just kept moving up the ladder. At DePaul, he's replacing their old coach who got fired after a rough start to the season. DePaul hasn't even been to the NCAA tournament in ages, let alone the Sweet Sixteen!

This is a new beginning for Holtmann, and DePaul seems to be going all-in on him. They're giving him a bunch of money to hire assistant coaches and for something called NIL (whatever that is). With Holtmann as coach, DePaul is hoping to turn their basketball program around and get back to being a big deal in college basketball.
