Tressel resigned at Ohio State on May 30 following an investigation that turned up evidence his players had received improper benefits. Tressel also allegedly failed to notify the school’s compliance department.
In his legendary career at Ohio State, Tressel went 94-21, won one national title and six Big Ten crowns, and went 8-1 against heated rival Michigan. All those numbers do not include 2010 results, which have been vacated.
