In The Region:

Former Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel is now a finalist for the presidency of two Ohio universities just 50 miles apart.

Youngstown State University announced today it has narrowed its search for a president to Tressel and five others. The five include some other nontraditional candidates -- a NASA official and the director of a school for the blind.

They’re all to be interviewed by Skype tomorrow and Saturday.

Tressel is also one of three finalists for the presidency at the University of Akron and is to be interviewed in person next week.

He’s been a vice president at Akron since shortly after Ohio State fired him in the midst of a scandal revolving around players selling memorabilia.

And he coached at Youngstown State before moving onto Ohio State.

 Here’s the list of Youngstown State candidates:

  • Mary Cullinan, president of Southern Oregon University
  • Gayle Ormiston, provost at Marshall University
  • Gary Miller, chancellor at University of North Carolina Wilmington
  • D. Marshall Porterfield, director of space life and physical sciences at NASA
  • Steven Rothstein, president of the Perkins School for the Blind
  • Jim Tressel, vice president University of Akron
