Jim Tressel is coming back to Ohio State later this spring. The former Buckeyes' national champion-winning head coach will be speaking at Urban Meyer's coaching clinic in April. 

Whose idea was it to bring the 63-year-old Youngstown State University president back to Columbus? 

Meyer's. 

The Ohio State coach told reporters on Tuesday that he was the one who got Tressel to agree to speak at his coaching clinic.

"I thought this was one of the most interesting places where you have three legendary coaches: two in town and one that’s still very close to Ohio State," Meyer said. "I just thought it would be great to have those guys back."

The Ohio State football coaches' clinic is set to take place from April 14-16.
