When Matta was asked about his interest in the OSU job while he was the coach at Xavier, he was quoted directly as saying, "I am not a candidate for the job at OSU." He also espoused his love for the Musketeers at that point.
It was later revealed that he had actually interviewed
for the OSU job two days earlier. Less than a week after his comments, he was at a press conference in Columbus announcing his hire.
Not a proven liar? Give me a break.
