You can tell that he is following the Joe Paterno model. JoePa gets criticized late in his career for some off the field issues with his team, but NO football coach has ever done more for their school than Paterno. Paterno only make $500,000 when he easily could be getting 2-3 million. His program consistently has high academic standards (and was the highest in Div-I in three of the last five years) and he has given tons of money to the school.
While I am an SEC guy, I do admit that they have no one like Tressel or Paterno. They are loyal guys who love their schools. They are classy coaches and classy guys (unlike Spurrier, Richt, Petrino, Nutt, and many others).
