James Patrick "Jim" Tressel (born December 5, 1952) is an American college administrator and former college football coach who served as head coach of the Youngstown State Penguins from 1986 to 2000 and the Ohio State Buckeyes from 2001 to 2010, winning five national championships between the two schools. Tressel is currently the president of Youngstown State University (YSU).


He was born in Mentor, Ohio and attended Baldwin–Wallace College, where he played football as quarterback under his father. He was hired by the Ohio State University prior to the start of the 2001 season to replace John Cooper. During his tenure as Ohio State's 22nd head football coach, Tressel's teams competed in three BCS National Championship Games, and his 2002 squad won a national title, achieving the first 14–0 season record in major college football since 1897 Penn Quakers.


However, while NCAA investigated violations involving OSU football players during the prior 2010 season, Tressel resigned from OSU as head coach in May 2011. The investigation resulted in OSU self-vacating victories from the 2010 season including the 2011 Sugar Bowl.Tressel finished his career at Ohio State with an official overall record of 94–22 (.810), including six Big Ten Conference championships, a 5–4 bowl record, a 4–3 mark in BCS bowl games, and an 8–1 record against the arch-rival Michigan Wolverines. Tressel's eight wins against Michigan place him second in school history to Woody Hayes, who had 16, and he is the only Ohio State head coach to win seven consecutive games against the Wolverines. Tressel's success as a head coach led to him being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2015.

From September 2011 until February 2012, Tressel was a consultant for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League (NFL).From 2012 to 2014 Tressel served as Vice President of Strategic Engagement for the University of Akron, before being named as Youngstown State University President on May 9, 2014.
