Buckeyes, Tressel sign long term deal

The Ohio State University just inked the best signing of the 2006 season. The Buckeyes and Coach Jim Tressel have agreed to a 7-year extension continuing through January of 2013.

Tressel has been one of the most successful coaches at Ohio State and whole NCAA over the last 5 years. He carries a record of 50-13 and has a National Championship. The way Tressel embraced the Buckeyes tradition and history in his first year was a sign to everyone around Buckeye Nation that this was a long term relationship.

This move of loyalty and stability to Coach Tressel should only increase the power Ohio State has when trying to sign a prize recruit.
