Former OSU head coach Jim Tressel

How do Ohio Football Coaches feel about the OHSFCA’s recommendation to honor former OSU Coach Jim Tressel by wearing a shirt and tie in Week 1. Here’s what some had to say about it…


Jay Minton’s not sure he’ll stop with the shirt and tie.

“I should put some powder in my hair to make it look a little gray like his,” said Minton, the head football coach at Wayne (Huber Heights, Ohio).
“That guy did so much for football and high school coaches in Ohio and
all around the country. People won’t ever understand just how much he
did (for this sport).”

That guy is Jim Tressel.

The
former Ohio State head coach was inducted into the Ohio High School
Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame on July 8 and four days later
the organization announced it wasn’t done honoring the five-time
national champion. Through an initiative suggested by Solon (Ohio)
head coach Jim McQuaide, the OHSFCA has recommended that its membership
honor Tressel the first week of the regular season by wearing a white
shirt and tie on the sideline.
