Jake Diebler welcomes back former Ohio State coach to his staff

As the college basketball season is winding down, we are starting to see new Ohio State basketball head coach Jake Diebler round out his coaching staff.

One Monday, one of those dominoes fell as it was announced that Dave Dickerson has returned to Columbus as the associate head coach. The former Maryland forward turned to coaching shortly after his playing career ended, and he moved up the ranks and held the same title for the Buckeyes from 2010 through 2017.

Dickerson recently was the head coach at University of South Carolina Upstate, where he didn’t fare all that well going 10-20 on the year.

Regardless of Dickerson’s record, he was an instrumental part of Thad Matta’s successful run and will now hope to duplicate that as a member of Diebler’s staff.
