Jim Tressel Lands Job In Akron As An Administrator

Jim Tressel has found another job, but not the kind that we may all think. Tressel who resigned from Ohio State will be taking a job with the University of Akron as an Administrator. Tressel has been hired as vice president for strategic engagement and will earn a base salary of $200,000 per year. The job starts May. 1 and he will be working with alumni, community organizations and friends of the school to develop strategies and efforts to help students succeed.

It is a non-athletic position and should be a good move for Jim Tressel. I do hope he does get back into coaching at some point as he was a good football coach. He made some bad decisions and that really hurt him. Getting a fresh start is what he needed and starting somewhere else is a good idea for him. Hopefully, somewhere down the road we will see him again on the football field coaching.
