Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann, as well as assistant coach Ryan Pedon, will be unavailable because of health and safety protocols Sunday for the basketball team’s game against Northwestern. The news was made available in a release from Ohio State Sunday afternoon.

OSU, as well as nearly all collegiate and professional sports teams, have struggled with COVID-19 positives with the surge in cases because of the Omicron variant and Ohio State has been hit square in the eyes with it. The program experienced a three-week pause that resulted in three games having to be shelved.

The game against Northwestern is at home Sunday at 5:30 p.m EST. Assistant coach Jake Diebler will be the acting head coach.

Nothing like being thrown into the fire in a game that’s pretty important for Ohio State after losing badly against Indiana this past week.
