People say athletes are backwards, but coaches are just as dirty.
Tressel was asked to resign from coaching at Ohio St. after it was revealed that he tried to hide the fact that some of his athletes were breaking NCAA rules by selling merchandise to local businesses. When the news broke, it seemed like an isolated incident, but Sports Illustrated has reported that Tressel has been involved in dirt for at least a decade.
Some of the memorabilia that was stolen and sold even apparently had Tressel’s signature! Not only is Tressel out of a job, but you better believe that Ohio State is going to face some serious sanctions in the coming days.
Not a good day to be a Buckeye fan. At least it’s good to see a coach get reprimanded and not just the athletes.
