Once Jim Caldwell was fired, there was some talk that former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel may get an interview. Now it sounds like the talk of the interview is very much real.
The Indy Star is reporting that Colts owner Jim Irsay was aboard a plane to Sarasota, Florida on Friday, where Tressel owns a home. Irsay was back in Indy late in the day, and there is no word if the trip was indeed to talk to Tressel or not?
The Star says that their sources state that they expect Tressel to get an interview for the Colts opening. Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. is also in line for an interview, along with Titans defensive coordinator Jerry Gray.
Tressel spent last season being a replay assistant for Caldwell and the Colts, and also did attend some practices to see just how NFL practices were run.
There’s no word that if Tressel was expected to remain with the team when a new coach (provided it’s not him) is hired.
