Jim Tressel Could Be Akron's Next Interim President

By DJ Byrnes on March 21, 2014 at 11:59a

Ohio State's E, Gordon Gee recently turned an interim presidential stint at West Virginia into a full-time job. Could Jim Tressel be looking to do the same at Akron?

Akron could do a lot worse — from a publicity and human being standpoint — than naming Jim Tressel as their next interim (and perhaps permanent) president.

But why stop there? Jim Tressel is the man, I think we've all come to realize that over the years. Why not scrap the Ohio government and make Jim Tressel our king? I'm just spitballing over here.

Here's Tressel's application if you're curious.

Saw him on campus few days ago here at UA running around doing administrative work.  Tried getting in an elevator with him, but he took the stairs like a champ.

Here's his application: http://deadspin.com/heres-jim-tressels-application-to-be-u-of-akron-pres...

Seems like a rather huge oversight that they would not redact his home address, home phone, and mobile phone numbers. You should probably text him your support, and maybe ask him some questions about the '02 team and Clarett. (Please don't do this).

+1 to Tressel for still claiming the 2010 B1G title on his CV.
