Ohio State University trustees to comment on NCAA probe

Jun 15, 2011

An Ohio State trustee says the university's governing board should be ready to address the school's ongoing football scandal next week.

Members of the 17-person board of trustees, which oversees most Ohio State actions, has consistently refused to comment on the NCAA investigation that led to coach Jim Tressel's forced resignation on May 30.

Speaking after a committee meeting, trustee Robert Schottenstein said Tuesday the board should have something more concrete to say at next week's meeting of the full board in Columbus. Schottenstein said the board would comment if it could, but noted the process is still in the early stages.

The NCAA is looking into improper benefits, car deals, discounted tattoos and other possible violations.
