Jim Tressel still has interest in the NFL, and with his old friend Jim Caldwell being hired as Detroit Lions' head coach, many speculate Tressel could be brought in as an offensive coordinator/advisor to the offense. Detroit president Tom Lewand is a Michigan Man, so he knows first-hand the prowess of Jim Tressel:
