UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A one year ban on postseason competition was among the additional penalties assesed to the Ohio State football program by the NCAA Tuesday.

The new penalties capped the case centered about Ohio State players getting cash for jerseys, rings and memorabilia.

The NCAA took away nine more scholarships over a three year period over and above the five Ohio State had surrendered voluntarily, and added a year of probation to the two years Ohio State had self imposed.

In addition, a five year show cause penalty was assesed former coach Jim Tressell, which mans any school who would hire him would risk having sanctions tied to the Ohio State situation inherited by them.

It makes it nearly impossible for Tressel to coach in college again in that period of time
