The rumor mill has been churning in regards to Jim Tressel recently. The vested former Ohio State coach reportedly turned down a shot to land the job at Akron.
Now, Tressel – who has been working as the Indianapolis Colts’ replay coordinator – is being linked to UCLA, which just fired coach Rick Neuheisel.
According to reports, Tressel was seen with Bruins athletic director Dan Guerrero on Monday. Justin Hopkins of 247 Sports, citing a source, tweeted Tuesday that a Tressel sighting at UCLA was true. However, it’s unclear if the iconic coach was, in fact, meeting with Guerrero.
If Tressel were to be hired by the Bruins, it would be a grand slam for the school despite his demise at Ohio State.
Can you imagine a UCLA-Ohio State Rose Bowl with Tressel in a powder blue sweater vest and Meyer in a scarlet windbreaker?
