Jim Tressel is one step closer to being a college president.

Cleveland.com reported that the former Ohio State head coach is one of three finalists for the Youngstown State job. Tressel is already a finalist for Akron's chief executive post. 

Tressel, the vice president of strategic engagement at Akron, will meet with UA campus leaders on May 1. He'll spend the day at YSU, where he spent 15 years as head coach and won four national championship, May 5. 

Tressel remains a beloved figure throughout the state of Ohio, despite a scandal that led to his demise at Ohio State.
