Tressel among 3 finalists to lead Akron
April 22, 2014
By The Associated Press
AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel is among three finalists in the University of Akron's search for a new president.
Tressel has been an administrator there for two years. He took the job after being forced out at Ohio State following a scandal in which his players sold memorabilia for cash and tattoos.
A campus email Tuesday from Akron trustees says the finalists include provosts from two other schools - Scott Scarborough of the University of Toledo and Ronald Nykiel (neye-KEEL') of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
Trustees say each finalist will spend one day next week interviewing with advisory groups. The school's current president, Luis Proenza (proh-EN'-zah), is leaving his position in June.
Tressel also applied to be president at Youngstown State University, where he previously coached.
