On December 10, 2016, the University of Cincinnati officially introduced Luke Fickell as their new head football coach.
Former Bearcats head coach Mark Dantonio worked with Fickell for two seasons (2002-2003) at Ohio State, with the two building a relationship that has continued through the years.
Now, with Dantonio having stepped away as the head coach at Michigan State, the two might be connected again.
Dantonio left Cincinnati on November 27, 2006, to take over the Spartans program. Now Fickell is considered one of the top candidates to replace Dantonio as the head of the Spartans program.
I spoke with Mark Dantonio shortly after the press conference introducing Luke Fickell as the Bearcats head coach and here is what Dantonio said about Fickell.
