Ohio St. Vacates All 2010 Football Wins
Ohio State is vacating all 10 of its 2010 football wins and placing itself on two years’ probation in the wake of a scandal that cost coach Jim Tressel his job.
The self-imposed sanctions are contained in the university’s formal response to the NCAA’s Notice of Allegations received April 21. The NCAA could impose its own punishment, which could be more severe.
Tressel and the university also announced they had agreed to recharacterize his departure as a retirement rather than a resignation.
