    Rumor: Tressel leaving

    Jim Tressel Leaving Ohio State - Daily Chicago Sports Tab

    This is simply a rumor right now and the sources could be ridiculously incorrect but since there was two and this is blowing up I posted it. 375 violations since 2000 and then the most recent debacle would be the likely cause. If nothing else, it's just a little excitement on Christmas Day.


    It's all snark from here on out

    don't be surprised if Penn State will be looking for a coach after next week.

    Ferentz will be interested to hear that.

    Well I didn't say it because it sounds absolutely ridiculous and I was hoping someone else had heard it but the name thrown out is Tony Dungy. I don't remember for sure who it was heard from but I believe it was someone connected to a high up booster. The originator was somewhat credible but I still find it hard to believe.

    Wow, really? Tony Dungy would go back to the college game when he could essentially have his pick of NFL jobs?

    Re: Rumor: Tressel leaving

    Yeah hard to believe that Tony Dungy. He's turned down MN where he played. He turned down every major NFL team the last 2 or so years. Really can't see it.

    But thanks for mentioning who it was.

    Re: Rumor: Tressel leaving

    Tony Dungy would certainly be an interesting hire. Didn't he say he was ready to retire, though?

    Re: Rumor: Tressel leaving

    Tony Dungy? Cmon, there could have been a better make believe rumor than that. At least throw out a name that would make sense. No way Dungy goes there, he's got his own calling right now.

    Re: Rumor: Tressel leaving

    The rumor I heard was Tony Dungy for 5 years while Al Golden gets his feet wet in major college football at Miami, then comes up to Happy Valley.

    A coach-in-waiting is one thing, but a coach-in-waiting with an HC job at another school? Now that's special

    (I'm about 90% sure this was on FoxSports.com a couple days ago... may have been ESPN though.)

    Re: Rumor: Tressel leaving

    Well i told my family, friend, and most importantly my barber i wouldn't tell anyone...

    i have taken the job at ohio state, i interviewed for the position a couple days ago... upon arriving in columbus, the AD simply said... lets cut the crap do you want this job or not.
    I being the man i am immediately took the job and graciously thanked him.

    He asked what he would expect out of our players
    I told him.. do you remember what the U was like in the 80's? thats what my program is all about.. getting as many unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and talking as much **** as possible.. we will have many recruiting violations because i will offer as much money as it will take to get the players that i want.
    Our defense will knock the **** out of people and we will be dirty. i will take notes on Nebraska and call Carl Pelini and ask him what to do on how to be dirty and still get away with it..
    well i hope this has given you some insight on how i will run the program.
    If anyone is interested in a assistant coaching job please contact me
