Source: 'No way in hell' Tressel will coach Colts

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.

Ohio State fans are the biggest babies not to mention the double standard they have.

"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."

First of all CALM DOWN. It's not like the guy paid the parents for a new house (Cam Newton, Auburn) or new cars & house (Reggie Bush, USC). Kids traded their memorabilia for tattoos. WOW. Sounds like what teenagers do. Did Tressel know and fail to report it? Yes. Was this a violation? Yes. He was fired and OSU took the punishment. I know politicians currently in office that have done WAY worse (i.e. DUI's, check fraud, white collar crimes, etc.). So ease off the guy, he knows how to coach (questionable recruiter). He will coach again sometime.

yes he was just a very bad coach, here are a few reasons why, he led the big 10 in graduation rates, they got the degree,
won national championship, his player,s loved him, great recruiter, oh i forgot he tried to protect some player,s that sold.
some of the ring,s and jersy,s that were there,s
DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOME ONE BRINGING OHIO STATE DOWN,
HELL  JOE PATERNO ARE YOU KIDDING ALL HELL LETS FORGET ABOUT THAT HELL THAY WERE JUST KIDS
THE NCAA HAD BETTER    WAKE  UP  THEY NEED TO CHANGE LOTS OF RULES OR UPDATE WHAT EVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT.
IF SOME UNIVERSITY DESERVES  DEATH PENALTY IT WOULD NOT BE HARD TO SEE WHO THAT WOULD BE,
 BUT HELL WITH THAT LETS JUST KEEP BURNING ON  THE EX- COACH OF OHIO STATE,
IT,S  PALE IN COMPARRISON,   BUT WHO CARES LETS KEEP BURNING ON  THE COACH, AND OHIO STATE,
LIKE  NO OTHER UNIVERSITY IS DOING,IT      MAN  WAKE  UP

I dont know if i would hire tressel, but he would at least be a candidate, he has 2 college championships (Youngstown & tOSU) and wouldnt be restricted by NCAA to be babysitting grown adults. the guy wins and is loved by his players.

Is this even a real article? 
Why would they be the laughinstock of the league?  The guy still knows how to coach, and he wouldn't have the NCAA limitations anymore to hinder him.  Why is it 'interesting' that they would keep him in some capacity if they already hired him as a replay consultant?

Whoever put their name on this article must have had their 12 year old write it.
