The Youngstown Vindicator reported the head of a firm leading Youngstown State’s search said Tressel applied for the post on Friday.

A message seeking comment with AGB Search’s president was not immediately returned.

Tressel coached at Youngstown State before leaving for Ohio State, where he was forced out following a scandal that led to NCAA sanctions.



This guy just won't stop believing that he is something special.

Bottom Line

Stupid comment to say the least.

He's a great coach but a poor zookeeper. Can't fault him for anything he did.


To me he was a good guy that got caught up in bull sh...t! and paid the price for it.........End of story!!!!!!

He is a COACH, no academic background, the college version of the high school physical education teacher. Why is he qualified to be a college president? He ran one of the most lawless programs in major college football, guess he could start wearing a bowtie with his vest .Could change their nicknames to the Youngstown State Tats.
