While CFT capably handles biggest football story on the planet, we are left to wonder what former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel will do next. One natural question: How about the NFL?
Gil Brandt of NFL.com knows Tressel well and doesn’t think it’s a fit.
“You look at all the highly successful college coaches and not many of them seem to translate that to the NFL. I don’t think the NFL is for Jim,” Brandt writes.
He believes Tressel is more likely to pursue an unpaid gig at a small school where he can go back to teaching young players and helping coaches.
NFL.com writer Albert Breer, letting his Ohio State colors shine, wrote a piece saying Tressel could succeed in the NFL. That may even be true, but it sounds like an unlikely step in his career.
Barry Switzer made the transition from disgraced college coach to Super Bowl Champion, but Tressel doesn’t have a buddy like Jerry Jones that owns an NFL team.
