After resigning (later re-branded and re-packaged as “retiring”) from THE Ohio State University for lying to and not cooperating with the NCAA, Jim “The Vest” Tressel is in the NFL with the Indianapolis.
Colts coach Jim Caldwell said on a conference call with the media Friday that Tressel will be a gameday consultant this coming season. Tressel will focus on consulting on replays, which mainly means he will be getting paid to tell the staff if they should throw the challenge flag or not.
Hey, it’s a sweet gig if you can get it. The Buckeyes stops here for replays.
Caldwell says he chose Tressel because the two have had a good relationship for a long time and that it fills a job he’d been looking to fill for several years. But in reality it kind of sounds like the gig is a patronage job and created just for Tressel.
No, the Colts do not play the Oakland Raiders this season; just in case you were wondering is you’ll get a chance to see Tressel go head to head against his former QB Terrelle Pryor in the NFL.
