NCAA won't hit Ohio State with failure to monitor

COLUMBUS — The NCAA is telling Ohio State that it won't slap the university with lack of institutional control charges over the memorabilia-for-cash and tattoos scandal that cost football coach Jim Tressel his job.

NCAA investigators informed Ohio State in a letter the school released Friday that they have not found any new violations, and they won't cite the school for failing to monitor its football program.

The NCAA letter also said that Tressel was the only university official who knew about the violations involving his players. He didn't report them to anyone else at the school.

Tressel stepped down in May, months after the university discovered emails showing he'd been warned in April 2010 about his players' involvement with a Columbus tattoo parlor owner.
