The Jim Tressel era is over… Ohio State University accepted the resignation of the longtime head football coach yesterday amid an NCAA investigation stemming from a tattoo parlor scandal that resulted in several suspensions and fines. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith:
The 58-year-old Tressell leaves OSU with a record of 106-and-22. He also led the Buckeyes to eight BCS games and 1 national title during his 10 seasons in Columbus.
Luke Fickell will serve as the team’s head coach for the 2011 season.
