YSU Football History Question
« on: March 29, 2023, 03:37:47 AM »
Hi all,

I'm working on a project on Jim Tressel's defensive coaches, and was wondering if any of you would be able to help me out a little.  I'm mostly looking at Dantonio and the defense that he ran at Ohio State, but I was hoping to fill in some background on Tressel's other hires and the systems that they ran at YSU.  I'm having trouble finding anything about his DC's in 1991, and then from 1997-2000 (was it Bob Tucker?), and was wondering if any of you were around then or know of any leads that I might look into?

Cool, thanks for the info about Conatser.  Wasn't Heacock at Indiana for some of those years, though?

The Iowa State athletic web site has Heacock listed as the DC at YSU from 1992-1996, then to Indiana from 97-99, and back to YSU as the DC for 2000.  That seems right to me.

Why wouldn't YSU have that info on him and his assistants?  Double check

spot-on wick. I had my years reversed. sorry about that Top. I remember that we all knew Tressel was gone when Heacock came back.
