Former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel has been hired by the Indianapolis Colts as a gameday consultant, according to a report.
So what's former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel going to be doing during the football season?
Colts have hired former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as game-day consultant, coach Jim Caldwell said today. Tressel will be in booth, be replay consultant among other things.
I'm not even sure what a gameday consultant does, and why someone with the profile of Tressel would be considered for that job. Perhaps it's a regional thing since he's in the area but I just don't understand it with the Ohio State scandal barely in the rearview mirror.
It also makes you wonder what Tressel's next move will be. Is this a sign that he's looking to get into the NFL? He's been spotted at a couple of NFL training camps this summer so it makes you wonder.
