This morning we awoke to some sudden, but not very surprising news that Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel has decided to resign. Amid all of the problems from the last few months and speculation into what will be the final and decisive punishment from the NCAA. Some would say that this move should have been made two or three months ago.
In the end, he has stepped down and now opens the door for the rumors to start flying about who will be the next head coach at Ohio State. But some will have to wonder where Tressel will go from here and if any school will take a chance on him. In the meantime, Co-Defensive Coordinator Luke Fickell will take over coaching duties for this season. I am sure more details will follow in the next few days.
