YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Former Ohio State University football coach Jim Tressel has signed on to be the ninth president of Youngstown State University, where he started his college coaching career.
Youngstown's Board of Trustees and Tressel on Monday signed a letter of understanding identifying key terms of a contract through June 2017. The deal calls for a $300,000 annual salary the first two years and a salary based on performance the third year.
The contract begins July 1. The university says it will be negotiated and approved later.
Youngstown board chair Sudershan Garg says the university looks forward to Tressel's leadership.
Tressel had been an administrator at the University of Akron the past two years and was a finalist for its presidency. He was forced out at Ohio State after players sold memorabilia for cash and tattoos.
