Wisconsin sets Board of Regents meeting regarding head coaching vacancy
Wisconsin set a Board of Regents meeting Sunday regarding its head coach vacancy.
The meeting will be held at 4 p.m. local time Sunday afternoon and will “move into closed session to consider employment and additional compensation agreements for the UW-Madison head football coach.”
There is speculation that Wisconsin is making a push to hire Luke Fickell as head coach. Fickell is currently the head coach of Cincinnati and spent most of his career as an assistant coach at Ohio State. Fickell led Cincinnati to a College Football Playoff appearance last season.
Before the news of Wisconsin’s push to hire Fickell, it was expected that Wisconsin would hire interim head coach Jim Leonhard. Leonhard took over for Paul Chyrst after a 2-3 start.

We’ll see which direction the Badgers go in, but it looks like a decision might be coming Sunday evening.
