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.

Multiple National Championships?!?! He won ONE!! (on a bad call at that) Unless you count Youngstown State DII. Where he ALSO got caught Cheating and run out of town!! I think Laughing Stock is a good analogy.

Hey Mike Freeman,

Unless your source is Jim Irsay, himself, or new GM Ryan Grigson,  this article is one big lie. These two are running the franchise, or actually, Jim Irsay is calling the shots, and with all of the assumptions coming from the media, esp the big swing and a miss when the media said Caldwell is keeping his job, I put more validity in Irsay's tweets than your column. And your quote "Disgraced Former Head Coach" tells me this was made up by you, considering your biased views towards Jim Tressel.

Considering that the Jags just hired Mularkey after his offense didn't score in the playoffs, I don't think the Colts would even be the laughing stock of their own division. I would be happier if the Colts hired Tressel than if they hired Mornhinweg or Wade Phillips.

In my opinion there are not many examples of good colleges coaches going to the NFL as a head coach and having great success.  I think Tressel is a good coach, and he will again coach somewhere, but as an NFL head coach, I am kinda weary of this.  I love the Colts, I just don't think that this would be a wise move right now.  But what do I know, if they do decide something like this, it could turn out to be great, no one knows!

Freeman, your such a douche. Not that I think the Colts will or should hire Tressel, but they would be far from a laughingstock because of it. How would it be any different than hiring Pete Carrol like the Sea Hawks did? Vacated wins, numerous violations on his watch, bowl and post season bans. Sound familiar Cletus? Your the worst.

WHY? So a College coach with multiple national championships going to an NFL Franchise makes them a laughingstock of the NFL?

Good thing Jerry Jones didn't think that when he hired Jimmy Johnson way back when.

What an assinine thing to write.

Why do I have this very strange feeling that the Colts maybe, just maybe considering the coach to actually be Payton Manning? I know it sounds crazy. But I have to say I think he would make a great head coach someday.

Who cares what he did in college, it's a different league; his actions were not criminal under Ohio or federal law, so he is fine by me.  He is a great coach, and I want him as my Colt's head coach!

@RU4OSU2
Who at SC paid for Bush family to stay in a house? Name the person that attended SC, coach, alum or fan that paid any money to house the Bush family, name that person!!

You can’t because the person that did this had nothing to do with the school, team or football program. The person was a convicted wanna be sport agent.
 
No one at SC paid a blue dime for the Bush family to stay in a house. If you don’t have your facts right keep your mouth shut.

This unscrupulous agent did not inform any one on the coaching staff or administration that he was paying for the Bush family to stay in a house. I am equally sure the Bush family was not stepping up to the plate and informing the coaching staff or administration that they were living in a h use paid for by this criminal.

Your head coach lied to the man that was his boss, he lied to the NCAA. He covered up the fact that the players on his team were selling Ohio State rings and other gear for a profit.  

The AD and president of Ohio State should have been honorable and resigned. Nope they threw Tressel under the bus alone. I m sure there had to be some type of financial arrangement made for Tressel to accept sole responsibility.
