Choices Through the duration of his contract in 2014. Forever; Sweater Vests are the fountain of youth. As far as I'm concerned, as long as he wants. Through January 4th; the fat guy in the Blackhawks jersey was right. #RonPrince4OhioSt Vote Comments Show All Comments Matthew 27 Dec 2010, 1:35 pm Can't vote for "as long as he wants" due to Joe Pa. Not that I think Coach Tressel would go that route, but you never know. Personally, I'd like to see one more extension beyond 2014 just cuz. Class of 2010 Conroy 27 Dec 2010, 1:41 pm I think Gene Smith's contract is until 2016, and Tressel is slated to become the AD after he is the coach, so I think Tressel will eventually get a two year extension and coach until 2016.
