Besides Jim Tressel, the former Youngstown State University and Ohio State University head football coach, the list of six candidates to be interviewed for the YSU presidency includes:

Gayle L. Ormiston, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost at Marshall University in Huntington, W.Va;

Mary Cullinan, president and English professor, Southern Oregon University;

Gary L. Miller, chancellor, University of North Carolina-Wilmington;

D. Marshall Porterfield, director of Space Life and Physical Sciences Division Human Exploration Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters;

and Steven M. Rothstein, of Watertown, Mass., president, Perkins School for the Blind.

Tressel, who is also a finalist for the presidency at the University of Akron, has worked as that university’s executive vice president for student success since 2012.

YSU trustees plan to interview the six candidates via Skype this weekend and narrow the list to three finalists who will visit campus.

I'm surprised!

No Abraham?

Oh yeah, Tressel took credit for all of his work!

What happens when the good coach Tressel gets the job in Akron?

This is pretty obvious Dr. Martin Abraham is going to be the next provost. A move I personally agree with and like.

Tressel is on Akron's and Youngsown's short lists to placate the wealthy and the delusional. No one in their right mind would choose a football coach to be president of a university, especially over the tremendously qualified individuals who are also on the lists. It's a joke!
