Ohio State head coach Bob Todd has announced his
retirement at the end of the season.

1,021-553-2, including 124-82 in four seasons at Kent State
(1984-87) and 897-471-2 in 23 seasons with the Buckeyes. Todd
has never had a losing season in 27 years as a head coach.
Under Todd, OSU has won seven Big Ten
championships and eight Big Ten Tournament crowns. The Buckeyes
have played in 13 NCAA Regionals under Todd and have hosted two
NCAA Super Regionals. Todd has been named Big Ten Coach of the
