Former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel was one of three finalists to become the president of the University of Akron, but he did not get the job, according to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports.

Tressel, currently the Executive Vice President for Student Success at Akron, also applied to become the president at Youngstown State, where he coached for 15 years before landing the Ohio State job. He is still a candidate for the Youngstown State position.
