He would make sure the job remained his by winning 23 games and advancing to the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Now the athletic director, Collier could choose to follow this almost flawless formula. His time at Butler, however, should not in anyway be underestimated. During the NCAA Tournament, Holtman ripped IL for terminating his good friend and former colleague John Groce.

Holtmann stepped in and immediately turned the program around. If Collier sticks to the formula, Pedon is one of two with a great shot. Holtmann also worked at Geneva and Taylor, where he was a guard from 1990-94 alongside Groce.

At Butler, meanwhile, ex-Michigan assistant coach LaVall Jordan could emerge as a top candidate to replace Hotlmann.

Butler has historically not strayed far in their coaching searches. Like Matta, he a coach of the Bulldogs before being hired by the Buckeyes, so there is something in common with his predecessor. He certainly is better prepared for the job now than four years ago.

In the meantime, the unkown variable of who will be the next OSU basketbal coach helps the programs that were in the thick of recruiting battles with the Scarlet and Gray. The team lost in the Sweet 16 to eventual national champion North Carolina last season.

Flynn previously said during an interview in 2016 that "when you are given immunity, that means you probably committed a crime". Trump also said in an interview that he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he made a decision to fire Comey.

Speaking of a quartet, the 4x400m relay team punched their ticket to the finals at the NCAA Championship in Eugene, Ore.

Brown, 47, was born on Columbus, Ohio, and spent six years as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers during two separate stints in 2005-2010 and 2013-2014. His 2017 recruiting class is the No. 34 ranked class in the nation, according to 247Sports, and features 6-foot-6 small forward Kyle Young, a four-star prospect from Massillon, Ohio. Steele has been an outstanding recruiter for XU; his IN ties helped the Muskeeters land All-America candidate Trevon Bluiett.

Moving to the other side, here's the reaction from the school in Indianapolis.

Fife would represent a step outside the Butler family - but not out of the program's footprint. He was named head coach of the Bulldogs within a season; in 2017, he was named Big East coach of the year. Fife was considered a candidate for the head coaching job at IN in March. But on the plus side, he's won at least one tournament game in all of those seasons.

Holtmann will be formally introduced at a news conference on Monday. Archie Miller, who left Dayton for IN earlier this year, would likely have been the Buckeyes' original prime target; he was an assistant to Matta from 2007 to 2009.
