The Ohio State basketball team will be hiring Tony Skinn as its third assistant according to news first reported by Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press and Gannett New Jersey.

Skinn, 38, has been with Seton Hall under head coach Kevin Willard for the past three seasons. He played his college basketball at George Mason from 2003 to 2006 after transferring from Blinn College. You may remember him as a key member of the surprising Final Four squad from 2006.

His college coaching background started at Louisiana Tech from 2015 to 2018 as an assistant before joining the Seton Hall staff. Skinn will join Jake Diebler and Ryan Pedon as assistant coaches. He fills the position left when Chris Holtmann’s assistant Terry Johnson left to become an assistant under Matt Painter at Purdue.
