BREAKING NEWS | Trumbull commissioners recommend Tressel for YSU prez



Published: Thu, February 20, 2014 @ 11:44 a.m.

WARREN — Trumbull County commissioners today recommended Jim Tressel to become Youngstown State University's ninth president.

"Not only is Jim Tressel a household name throughout Ohio, he has a following because of his ability to lead and inspire people he comes in contact with.

"His love of YSU and commitment is demonstrated by his $1 million donation to YSU several years ago. Will any of your prospects demonstrate that kind of commitment and allegiance to YSU?" the commissioners wrote in a letter.

Tressel is a former head football coach at YSU and Ohio State University, and he coached both squads to national championships. Tressel now is executive vice president of student success at the University of Akron.

On Wednesday, a group of Mahoning Valley business people, union leaders and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, wrote a letter to YSU trustees endorsing Tressel as president.
