Rumors have swirled around Luke Fickell, the former Ohio State defensive coordinator and current Cincinnati head coach and the job opening at Michigan State that was created by Mark Dantonio.

Dantonio left the Spartans’ head coaching gig on Tuesday and Fickell is seen as the favorite to land the job.

On Wednesday, Fickell talked about all the people he’s talked to regarding the opening.

Hint: It’s been nobody.

If this is the case, then maybe Fickell shouldn’t be seen as the favorite to get the job. After all, reports have come out about coaches that have denied interest in the Spartans job altogether.

Michigan State is trying to find its next head coach. But, will it be Fickell?

Not if the two don’t talk.
