NEW YORK (Reuters) - Ohio State University's Jim Tressel, one of the top U.S. college football coaches, has quit in the continuing fallout from payment violations that led to suspensions for five of his players.
"After meeting with university officials we agreed it is in the best interest of Ohio State that I resign," said Tressel, who had also been fined $250,000 by the university, in a statement on Monday.
Five players on his 12-1 team in 2010, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor, traded memorabilia including championship rings and uniforms for cash in violation of strict rules governing college sports.
Tressel, who was informed of the violations months before the case became publicly known and did not advise university officials, had been handed a five-game suspension for the start of next season to match the punishment of the players.
Assistant coach Luke Fickell, who was already due to fill in for Tressel during his suspension, will take over as interim coach next season.

Embattled coach Jim Tressel has resigned from Ohio State, The Columbus Dispatch has reported, citing university sources.

The news comes two weeks after Buckeyes athletic director Gene Smith affirmed his support for the coach, who has coached Ohio State for 11 seasons.

At the Big Ten spring meetings earlier this month, Smith -- while declining to discuss any details of an ongoing NCAA investigation of Tressel -- said his outlook toward the coach's position hadn't wavered.

"Oh, definitely, no question," Smith said. "I haven't changed, I haven't changed. But I'm not talking about the case beyond that."

Smith noted last month in an interview with The a.ssociated Press that Tressel should have apologized at a March 8 news conference, where Tressel acknowledged he failed to notify Ohio State officials of emails he received about some of his players receiving improper benefits.

Smith has also talked about the high legal costs Ohio State is dealing with, calling the ongoing NCAA situation "a nightmare."

Tressel also received support at the spring meetings from fellow coaches such as Michigan State's Mark Dantonio and Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald, as well as from Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne, a longtime friend.

"Coaches are great," Tressel said. "They understand all the challenges everyone has. It's good to be with them."

Information from ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg and The a.ssociated Press was used in this report.

Ohio State has alotta money, tradition and is a easy school to bring in recruits..... they'll throw 4-5 mill a year to whoever is a hot commodity in coaching right now if they decide to take that route. Kiffin took the USC job knowing the sanctions u know i'm saying
