There was a report the Indianapolis Colts are at least considering disgraced former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as head coach, who is on the Indianapolis staff as a gameday consultant. I checked with a Colts source and he said this: "No way in hell."

But this is the interesting part. The source explained that owner Jim Irsay likes Tressel and does want him to have some sort of role in the organization (a new head coach will have some say in that of course). Which is, well, incredible. If you remember Tressel resigned as Ohio State coach after it was determined the Buckeyes had numerous rules violations under his watch. Ohio State later self-vacated its entire 2010 season.

It would be totally out of the question for the Colts to make Tressel a head coach now. The Colts would be the laughingstock of the NFL.

But it's possible the Colts may keep Tressel in some capacity. Possible, not definite.

Are you kidding me? You are quite possibly the only human being who thinks Dungy is the devil. You actually think he made his son kill himself? WOW! And you call him a bum coach. He was fired in Tampa after losing in the playoffs. He took the team that was the laughingstock of the NFL and built a super bowl team. When he got to Indy he reached the playoffs EVERY year he was here including a super bowl! No matter who you cheer for you have to admit he is a damn good coach.

The Ed,

   I can't figure out who is more retarded, you or Freeman.  We should have a vote.  I think you would nudge him out, but it would be very close.

as far as Tressel - he would be a great stop gap while indy rebuilds. he could hire a strong OC(maybe guy named Manning) and DC . he is a good game manager and has a knack for making second half adjustments. indy could do worse. oh thats right rexy is under contract already

There is a HUGE difference in winning in the Big 10 and winning in the NFL. The Colts are built for offense, not exactly Tressel's forte. I'm a Colts fan, and could care less about what happened at Ohio State, Youngstown State or anywhere else the guy coached. But, I do not want to see him coaching the Colts. It would be back to the dark ages of 4-12 for 5 years, then look again for another coach, one who knows something about running a pro-style offense. A disaster in the making.....

@GulfCoastView.....the first name that comes to mind when you ask "Who is perfect?" Former Colt coach....Tony Dungy....he was a successful coach and left coaching  and $millions to try to make a difference in the life of troubled young men.  The goodness of religion is debatable (compare church groups rebuilding houses for the poor after a tornado vs. 9/11 terrorism) but his Christian values are a plus in my mind as well.  Tom Landry is another head coach who comes to mind.

Is anyone truly perfect?  It depends on how you define it.  No one has an undefeated career as a coach.  As a person no one can claim they've never gone one mile over the speed limit or stayed in the exact center of their lane for example.  So I get it when you say no one is perfect, but to imply that half the coaches have committed some type of ethics infraction or cover-up is too much to believe.

Tressel needs to make restitution of the money he was paid while lying to his bosses in withholding information from his employer,  the fans of The Ohio State University, and the taxpayers of the great State of Ohio, in addition to the teams that Ohio State played and affected THOSE teams' records for which bowl they got to or didn't based on their game against a coach-coverup season. &nb
sp; Tressel deserves a 5 year prison sentence for fraud and deception more than a quiet gig with a 6 figure salary.  Indy will have nothing but grief to knowingly hire a guy that will lie to the detriment of his employed organization.  Question:  Did Indy get a positive referral from Ohio State on his resume?

Pimpinatti, there you go trying to discredit and twist the truth. Your right, I MADE IT ALL UP! But, if thats true. Then why when you type "YSU Scandal" in a web search Tressels name is ALL OVER IT! Funny how the sanctions and all came down LESS THAN A YEAR before he took the OSU job! But, I made it up. Me and the NCAA and Sports Illustrated made it up. I clipped a part of the article for ya buddy:

The SI article that appeared online Monday night and will be available in print today also retraces the YSU scandal. In February 2000, 11 months before OSU hired Tressel, YSU acknowledged football violations and announced self-imposed sanctions.

Sounds more like FACT, than Opinion huh?! Why is it that OSU fans can NEVER admit to any wrongdoing in the program? Face it bro, Tressel Is Shady! And, you were another of his puppets with blinders. TOOL!
