However, did you know Tressel wrote a second book that was published during the fateful year of 2011? It was called Life Promises for Success and was a collection of Tressel’s favorite Bible verses.
Well, last year on March 7, Tressel was at a book signing at Costco in Columbus. This was the exact same day the Yahoo! story broke – you know, the one that revealed Tressel knew about the transgressions of Terrelle Pryor and DeVier Posey due to an email exchange with attorney Chris Cicero.
“It was surreal,” a source said. “I didn’t think (Tressel) would show up, but he did. I mean, the news had just broken. The Yahoo! story had just been published. I talk to a lot of fans that don’t even know Tress wrote a second book that was published. But he did. He looked like he saw a ghost that evening. He didn’t look like himself.”
The book is still on sale for $7.99 at various websites. Here is the description:
“In Life Promises for Success, NYT bestselling author and Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel shares a collection of inspiring readings and Bible promises designed to encourage those seeking to succeed in every area of life. Filled with easily applicable Bible verses, motivational quotes, and engaging and inspiring readings, Life Promises for Success is the perfect daily reader for anyone looking to reach their highest goals.”
