Former OSU Coach Joins WKYC For ‘Teachable Moments’

Jim Tressel, former head coach at Ohio State University will be joining WKYC for weekly news segments beginning Wednesday night.

The Cleveland NBC affiliate announced the news on its website saying,

“We are very pleased to announce that Jim Tressel will be joining the WKYC team as a special contributor,” stated Brooke Spectorsky, President and General Manager. “Jim’s national championships as head football coach at Ohio State and Youngstown State universities are well-known to all, but his motivational speeches and best- selling books will be the basis of our “A Moment with Jim Tressel.”

The station is looking for Tressel to take daily news stories and turn them into teachable moments.

Tressel coached Youngstown State to four Division I-AA national championships then went on to lead Ohio State to a Division I championship in 2002.  However, his coaching career has been tinged with controversy.  Tressel stepped down at Ohio State in 2011 after being investigated for rules violations during the 2010 season.

“A Moment with Jim Tressel” will air Wednesday nights during WKYC’s 7 p.m. newscast.
