In The Region:

Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel is one of three finalists for the presidency at the University of Akron.

Also finalists to succeed retiring President Luis Proenza are Ronald Nykiel, provost of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and Scott Scarborough, provost of the University of Toledo.

Both Nykiel and Scarborough will be visiting campus next week to meet with faculty, deans, students and community representatives, as well as the university trustees.

Tressel is already on campus; he’s a vice president at Akron. But he, too, will be meeting with the committees on May 1.  He’s also a candidate for the presidency at Youngstown State University.

Tressel remains under NCAA sanctions through 2016 tied to a memorabilia-selling scandal at Ohio State.

 

Here's a link to the schedule for the candidate visits at the University of Akron:

Listener Comments:

Did YSU and UofA search committees forget Mr. Tressel was fired from their sister institution, Ohio State, after being found guilty of ethics violations? How can they even consider him to lead the next generation of scholars? How embarrassing.
