Earlier on Thursday, Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer let his support of Ohio governor and 2016 Presidential candidacy hopeful John Kasich be known. It looks like Kasich also has the support of former Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel.
This doesn’t come as a huge surprise as many in the state are declaring their support for Kasich. Tressel is just one of the many to have recently openly endorse the candidate as Kasich has many Ohio events scheduled where the former coach is scheduled to appear.

Having a name like Jim Tressel supporting you in the presidential race is huge for Kasich. Right now, he isn’t expected to win the nomination, but him winning Ohio would go a long way in determining the future of the Republican Party.
With these two big names in the state supporting Kasich, it is very possible that other head coaches could begin declaring their support very soon. Who could be the next to join Tressel and Meyer?
