Jim Tressel may wind up staying employed by the Colts. He just won’t be taking over for Jim Caldwell.
Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com has a Colts source that says there is “no way in hell” Tressel will get the top job. Still ,owner Jim Irsay reportedly likes Tressel and may want to keep him in some capacity.
We’re not sure what capacity exactly that would be. Surely, the next Colts head coach would have something to say about it.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen has floated Marc Trestman as a possible candidate in Indianapolis. Steve Spagnuolo met with the team about the defensive coordinator position before Caldwell was fired.
Otherwise, the Colts have done a good job keeping their head coaching search a mystery so far.
