He was suspended for two games but later requested it be increased to five games, to match the penalties of his players.

Tressel led the Buckeyes to a national title in 2002, as well as seven Big Ten titles. His 10-year record at Ohio State is 106-22.

The report indicates that assistant Luke Fickell will serve as interim coach.
