Records released by the university as part of a public-records request show that Tressel, forced to resign on May 30 for knowing about NCAA violations and then covering them up, was graded "excellent" in 10 of the 12 areas in the evaluation.

Yet the unsigned NCAA-Ohio State evaluation form also rated Tressel unacceptable in self-reporting violations and in "timely and accurate completion of phone and unofficial visit logs."

Tressel lost his job after it was discovered he knew players received improper benefits in April 2010, but did not report them to his superiors or NCAA compliance officers until confronted with the evidence in January.
