'I am not in the portal:' Luke Fickell's son Landon addresses future at UC

It appears not every member of the Fickell family is leaving the Queen City.

Former Cincinnati Bearcats coach Luke Fickell is officially the new head coach of the University of Wisconsin Badgers. But it looks like his son, UC offensive lineman and former Moeller High School guard Landon Fickell, is staying in Cincy.

Landon Fickell, offensive lineman for the University of Cincinnati and son of former UC head football coach Luke Fickell, recently tweeted that he has not entered the transfer portal.

A Twitter user posted a theory about Landon and Luke Tuesday afternoon, saying, "Landon Fickell’s Twitter likes. Clear disdain with his father’s decision."

Although this is not an official confirmation, the fact Landon has not yet entered the transfer portal could mean he plans to remain at UC.

Luke Fickell, who the Wisconsin Badgers introduced as their new head coach on Monday, agreed to a seven-year deal with the program that starts at $7.5 million per year.

Cornerbacks coach/special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs will serve as the Bearcats' interim head coach. Cincinnati Director of Athletics John Cunningham said there will still be a national search to find Fickell's replacement in which both internal and external candidates will be considered.
