Ohio State Football Coach Jim Tressel Resigns

Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel was set to be suspended from the first five football games of the season for various infractions he was being investigated for by the NCAA.   Instead, he quit today.

Tressel released this statement this morning,

“After meeting with university officials, we agreed that it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign as head football coach.”

Does this shock you?  I am not at all surprised.  This is the easy way out.  Perhaps he should have just admitted guilt while he was at it.  That’s how I see it.  What do you think?
