BY JUSTIN LADA SENIOR WRITER A certain former Ohio State Buckeyes coach could be trading in his scarlet sweater vest for blue and gold and taking a short trip up I-71.
Jim Tressel, confirmed by a source at the University of Akron was at the men’s basketball game against Detroit last Saturday night. The same source says that officials from the University will be meeting with Tressel on Tuesday or Wednesday of this week.
Tressel earned his Masters in Education at Akron in the 1970s and was a Graduate Assistant and helped coached quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs.
It has also rumored that the board of donations at the University of Akron are pushing hard for Tressel to coach the Zips football team, who went 2-22 under former coach Rob Ianello, who was fired after two years on Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org
