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.
The Vindicator newspaper (http://bit.ly/SV3Ag1 ) says Tressel signed a three-year contract at the university's board of trustees meeting Monday night.
The newspaper reports Tressel will earn $300,000 the first two years, with third-year salary undetermined. The contract begins July 1.
A university spokesman hasn't returned a message seeking comment.
The board voted unanimously last week to offer the job to Tressel.
Tressel had been an administrator at the University of Akron for the past two years and was a finalist for the presidency there.
He was forced out as Ohio State coach following a scandal in which players sold memorabilia for cash and tattoos.
