Ohio St suspends Tressel 2 games for violation

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State has suspended football coach Jim Tressel two games and fined him $250,000 for violating NCAA rules.

Tressel also will receive a public reprimand and must make a public apology.

Ohio State says in a release that it submitted a report to the NCAA that Tressel "violated provisions of NCAA Bylaw 10.1 when he failed to notify the university about information received involving two football student-athletes."

Ohio State says it "became aware of this situation on Jan. 13, while reviewing information on an unrelated legal issue."
