Ex-Ohio State Coach Tressel Hired by Colts as Game-Day Adviser

Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The Indianapolis Colts hired former Ohio State University coach Jim Tressel as a game-day adviser, three months after he resigned from the Buckeyes amid an investigation into rules violations.

Colts coach Jim Caldwell said today that Tressel, 58, will assist the National Football League team with various tasks, according to spokesman Avis Roper.

Tressel quit his job at Ohio State after a National Collegiate Athletic Association investigation revealed that the coach knew about his players’ infractions and failed to notify the NCAA.

In December, quarterback Terrelle Pryor and five Buckeyes were suspended for selling or trading uniforms and other memorabilia to the owner of a tattoo parlor. The school vacated all 12 of its wins in the 2010 season, including a Sugar Bowl victory, following the NCAA investigation.

Tressel was 94-22 in 10 years at Ohio State. He led the Buckeyes to their first national championship in 34 years during the 2002 season and won at least a share of the Big Ten conference title in each of the last six seasons.
