Ohio State has submitted a formal response to the NCAA’s notice of allegations today, and a release from the university has provided details of the report.
In response to the discovery of five players receiving improper benefits from tattoo parlor owner Eddy Rife, along with coach Jim Tressel’s knowledge of the situation without reporting it to the proper compliance offices, Ohio State has:
School president Gordon Gee, Athletic Director Gene Smith and former head coach Jim Tressel will meet with the NCAA on August 12 to discuss this response. The NCAA will then determine whether the above self-imposed penalties are satisfactory, or whether additional penalties such as post-season bans and/or a loss of football scholarships is necessary.
Of note -- the university updated Jim Tressel’s situation, and both parties agree that his departure was a retirement, not a resignation.
“I take full responsibility for my mistakes that have led to the ongoing NCAA inquiry and to scrutiny and criticism of the football program, “ Tressel said of the report. “ I am grateful for this opportunity to retire from the university that I so deeply respect and that I will continue to support.”
