The Indianapolis Colts and head coach Jim Caldwell have hired former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel as a “Game-Day Consultant” -- which entails him being in the booth as a “replay consultant, among other things.”
Tressel’s move is curious and has people thinking he might pursue a position full time on an NFL coaching staff. Tressel spent a lot of time during his tenure in Columbus fighting off rumors that he was contemplating a move the big league. Ohio State’s former head coach has been traveling to various training camps this fall, including a pit-stop in Cleveland to watch the Browns.
But for now, he will do whatever a Game-Day Consultant does. If that really entails “replay” consulting, I can imagine Jim Caldwell’s headset filled with Tressel screaming, “RUN DAVE, RUN DAVE, STOP PASSING AND RUN DAVE!”
