Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Chris Holtmann suspended forward Derek Funderburk on Thursday for failure to meet team expectations, according to a statement relayed by CBS Sports' Matt Norlander.
Funderburk, who was a 4-star recruit during his senior year at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia, redshirted for the Buckeyes last season.
Holtmann levied the disciplinary action against Funderburk six days after he was announced as the program's new head coach.
Specifics regarding the suspension weren't made available, but Holtmann's decision sends a clear message that he'll run a tight ship as the Buckeyes eye their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2015.
