Instead of searching for one more team for one more season, he took Matta up on his offer. Oden returned to Ohio State. He signed on originally as a student-manager. Once he enrolled full-time in school, and all the compliance box T’s were crossed and I’s dotted, Matta was able to promote him to student-coach. “I just knew there were certain roads I could go down, but this was the best one for me,” Oden says. “To get that degree, to continue to stay around basketball, that’s what will help me down the road.”

Thad Matta thinks Oden would make a terrific coach, that the combination of his skills, knowledge and personality would translate well with players.
