Fickell is less than ten wins away from being UC's all-time winningest coach.

CINCINNATI — UC Football head coach Luke Fickell held his weekly press conference on Tuesday and addressed rumors tying him to the open Notre Dame head coaching position.

Fickell commented on the big news and made it clear he's focused on this team, these players, and the 2021 AAC Championship game on Saturday against No. 24 Houston.

"I don't know what there is to address," Fickell said about the opening. "I don't talk to a whole lot of people. There is nothing. That's the crazy thing. It's all whatever is being said out there and different things. There is no speculation. Is the job open? I guess it is. I wouldn't know if someone didn't tell me. Most importantly, all I care about is the guys on this team."

According to BetOnline , Fickell has the second-lowest odds to take over the job, behind Notre Dame defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman.
