This upcoming April Ohio State University will conduct their annual coach’s clinic on the 14th through the 16th. Along with other high profile coaches in attendance, the former Ohio State coach himself, Jim Tressel, will be in attendance. The coach was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 2015.
The Mentor, Ohio native, Jim Tressel played college football for his father at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio. After graduating from Balwin-Wallace, Tressel became a graduate assistant at the University of Akron and coached quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs while earning a master’s degree in education. In 1978, Tressel left Akron to become the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and by 1981 left that position to coach the quarterbacks at the University of Syracuse. In 1983 Tressel’s career at Ohio State began as he started coaching the quarterbacks and receivers at the University. The following year Tressel was given the added responsibility of coaching the running backs as well. In 1985, Tressel left Ohio State briefly to become the head coach of Youngstown State. Tressel would be the head coach there until 2001 and compiled a record of 135-57-2 and won four national championships making him and his father the only father-son duo to win a national championship. In 2001, Tressel returned to Ohio State but this time as head coach and finished his first season with a 7-5 record but Ohio State did defeat rivals Michigan which Tressel had promised at his speech to the school during halftime of a basketball game following his hire. The following year, the Buckeyes won their first national championship in 32 years by running the table and defeating the University of Miami in the Fiesta Bowl. Up until his retirement in 2011, Tressel compile a record of 94-22 and took the Buckeyes to multiple bowl games and the second highest winning percentage in school history.
This upcoming April, Jim Tressel will be in attendance to speak at Ohio State’s annual coach’s clinic. Having one of the most accomplished coaches in not only school history but in college football history should prove to create an even greater turnout than was expected before.
