In five seasons with the Ohio State Buckeyes, Chris Holtmann led the program to an overall record of 107-56 and a Big Ten record of 58-40. He also made the NCAA Tournament four times in five seasons with the lone season being 2020 when the NCAA Tournament was canceled. The program was expected to make the tournament that season as well. During his tenure as Head Coach, Ohio State has not made it past the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He has been successful enough to warrant the contract extension by Ohio State.

Chris Holtmann has been successful as a Head Coach before and during his tenure with the Ohio State Buckeyes. This contract extension secures his future and from the perspective of the program, hopefully, ensures he stays with the program long term. Holtmann and the Buckeyes want to eventually win a National Championship and thus far they have fallen short. Good recruiting and good coaching could get them there one day in the future.
