Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel is the new president of Youngstown State University.  A school spokesman says the trustees voted to offer the president job to Tressel.  He was one of three finalists for the job at the northeastern Ohio school where he once coached the football team.  Ron Cole said Friday that a contract is being negotiated.  Tressel was chosen of the president of Southern Oregon University and the chancellor of the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
