Ohio State has offered Creighton's Greg McDermott the head coach position just one day after the university announced that Thad Matta would not be returning next season, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

McDermott met with Ohio State officials on Wednesday night.

Late Thursday morning, McDermott tweeted that he is committed to remaining at Creighton.

McDermott has been the head coach at Creighton since 2010 and won 166 games with the Blue Jays. He has previously coached at Iowa State and Northern Iowa.
