COLUMBIA - With Jim Tressel resigning, would Ohio State turn to Gary Pinkel as a replacement?

Pinkel played at Kent State and coached at Toledo. Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden responded to that question at the Big 12 meetings in Kansas City.

"Gary and I have worked together for ten years, and we are looking forward to this season," said Missouri Athletic Director Mike Alden. "We just signed a brand new contract for coach Pinkel about two months ago, three months ago so I hope that we are going to be working together for a long long time and I expect that and we are excited about it."
