In a move that makes his intentions to remain coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes very clear, Jim Tressel has decided to lawyer up. Tressel hired Gene Marsh, who was the former NCAA chair on infractions (a position the Ohio State grad held from 2004-2006). Former Buckeye and currently ESPN analyst Chris Spielman thinks Tressel won't be coaching at all in 2011 because "there is more stuff coming out." Tressel's decision to retain Marsh shows that he plans to fight to be to be on the sidelines (after his five game suspension to start the year, of course).
Ohio State will have a separate lawyer than Tressel for the NCAA infractions hearing on August 12.
