When Ohio State and Thad Matta parted ways Monday afternoon, Xavier head coach Chris Mack’s name naturally popped up in the coaching rumors, as it does for every job that opens.
The rumors seemed to gain a bit of steam when various Twitter folks noted that Mack’s house was on the market.
his house just went on the market in crestview hills ky this morning...— Greg Goddard (@GPGVette) June 6, 2017
Wednesday afternoon, though, Mack seemingly put the rumors to bed with a tweet of his own.
My timing for this house sale, well . But we are moving to NKY. Love Xavier! Now, about that house we have to sell... any takers?— Chris Mack (@CoachChrisMack) June 7, 2017
So, that just about settles that. The rumor was always a bit far-fetched in the first place, as Mack would be leaving a likely preseason top 10-15 team for a rebuilding job at Ohio State, but you know how the rumor mill works by now.
