Tressel makes pitch for Youngstown State top job

Written by 


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel says he hasn't thought much about whether he would accept the presidency of Youngstown State University over the same job at the University of Akron.

Tressel - who is a finalist for the presidency at both universities - made his pitch for the job Monday to faculty, staff and students at Youngstown State. He did the same at the University of Akron last week.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports that Tressel told reporters he doesn't plan on going back to coaching and will take his next job "with the idea that I could be there forever." Tressel is a former Youngstown State football coach.

Tressel was forced out at Ohio State following a scandal in which players sold memorabilia for cash and tattoos.
