MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota coach Glen Mason promoted Luke Tressel from assistant strength coach to receivers coach on Monday.

Tressel started with the Gophers as a graduate assistant in 2002 and 2003, working with the quarterbacks and receivers, before joining the strength and conditioning staff last season. He replaces Richard Wilson, who was fired in January. ``We are very excited about Luke returning to our football coaching staff,'' Mason said. ``He brings a tremendous amount of energy, enthusiasm and an extremely positive attitude.'' Tressel played cornerback at Hamline University in St. Paul. His uncle, Jim Tressel, is the head coach at Ohio State.

Tressel's just keep moving up, Jim needs to get him to coach at tOSU!
