WTKA-AM (1050): Michigan's Bo Schembechler considered ex-Ohio State coach Jim Tressel 'a snake in the grass'
Former Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler saw recently resigned Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel as "a snake in the grass," according to Ann Arbor author John U. Bacon.
Bacon, who wrote "Bo's Lasting Lessons," with Schembechler's help, spoke today on WTKA-AM (1050) on "The Michigan Insider" with hosts Sam Webb and Ira Weintraub about the ongoing NCAA investigation into the Ohio State football program and Tressel's resignation on Monday. A listener wanted to know what Schembechler would have thought of the scandal.
"You want a quote?" Bacon said. "Bo described to me that Tressel was a snake in the grass."
Bacon went on to say that Schembechler also described Tressel as a nice guy, very charming and a "helluva recruiter."
Bacon, a freelance writer and speaker who has taught several classes at the University of Michigan, also wrote about Ohio State and Tressel on his blog today, noting that even now the ex-coach will be fine.
"The mess Tressel leaves behind will be for everyone else to clean up: the players, the school and the next coach, for years," Bacon wrote.
