Former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel and Kansas State coach Bill Snyder have been selected for induction to the College Football Hall of Fame.
Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams of Texas and Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth were also selected to the latest Hall of Fame class of 15 players and two coaches announced Friday by the National Football Foundation.
Tressel was nominated by Youngstown State, where he coached 15 seasons and won four Division I-AA (now FCS) national titles and is now the president of the university. His greatest fame, however, came at Ohio State, where he was 106-22 in 10 seasons, including a national championship in 2002. Twelve victories from the 2010 season were vacated by the NCAA because of rules violations by Tressel and Ohio State players.
Tressel's father, who went 155-52-6 at Baldwin-Wallace from 1958-73, was inducted in 1996.
Snyder orchestrated one of the greatest turnarounds in college football history at Kansas State. He turned the Wildcats into a Big 12 power and a national title contender in a span of nine years.
He retired after the 2005 season, but returned in 2009 and has not had a losing season since.
Williams won the Heisman in 1998 and left Texas as the leading career rusher in FBS with 6,279 yards. He currently ranks second behind Wisconsin's Ron Dayne.
Bosworth was a two-time Butkus Award winner (1985 and 1986) as the nation's best linebacker, helping the Sooners win three straight Big Eight titles and the 1985 national title.
Oregon WR suspended
Oregon wide receiver Darren Carrington is suspended for the national championship game because of a failed NCAA drug test, according to a person with direct knowledge of test results.
Team spokesman Andy McNamara confirmed that Carrington is not with the team but would not indicate why.
The redshirt freshman had seven catches for 166 yards and two touchdowns in Oregon's Rose Bowl win over Florida State.
