Jim Tressel hired at Akron as vice president


Tressel served as a replay consultant last season for the Indianapolis Colts. He twice met with team owner Jim Irsay about the team's head coaching position but didn't get the job, and added that he has no current plans to coach again.

For now, he is committed to Akron.

"I don't really have any interest in coaching in the NFL," Tressel said. "The commitment I've made to any place I've gone is that I was going to work every day like I was going to be there forever. I'll be coaching students every day. I'm an educator.

"I'm going to work as if this is the last place I'm ever going to work. I'm excited about being a Zip."
