Urban Meyer Ohio State Rumors: Why Coach Must Retain Luke Fickell on His Staff

Luke Fickell bleeds Scarlet and Gray. He is as Buckeye as they come and represents everything Ohio State is. He's hard-nosed, tough, defensive-minded, an Ohio native and a former great player at OSU.

Fickell walked into the toughest of situations this year at Ohio State and although he was not successful enough to receive a contract extension as the head coach, I'm not sure anyone would have been. Combine the difficult situation with Fickell's inexperience as a head coach and you'll get a 7-5 or 6-6 season no matter who fills in.

However, Fickell has shown great potential as a head coach and his assistant coach resumé is impeccable. If the young coach is willing, it would benefit Urban Meyer tremendously to retain Fickell.

Wherever possible.
