Rumor: Zips pursuing Tressel

By mrasor Published: November 28, 2011


I didn't want to post this, but the rumors are gaining steam so quickly that I can't ignore it either.

Akron is pursuing former Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel, according to

Akron: The same source that confirmed to us the Akron news on Tuesday has told us that Akron officials are targeting Jim Tressel. For what it's worth, Akron's facilities are considered "the best in the MAC".

It does seem like Akron and Tressel would be a good match. I'm concerned about 1) whether the university should dump millions into a football coach and 2) the effects of Tressel's NCAA tagalong violations.

But overall, I'd be ecstatic. I just don't want to raise my expectations, only to be disappointed with a person who might be a great coach.
