Ex-coach Jim Tressel applies to lead Youngstown State

YOUNGSTOWN— Former Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel has applied to become president at Youngstown State University less than a month after he applied for the same position at the University of Akron.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports that the head of a firm leading Youngstown State’s search said that Tressel applied for the post 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.

He has worked as an administrator at Akron for two years. He applied in mid-March for the president’s job there, saying he had 35 years of experience in higher education.
