Cincinnati Targeting OSU Coaches? Cincinnati is on the hunt for a new coach after Tommy Tuberville stepped down on Sunday in the wake of a 4-8 season. The Bearcats may have their eye on several OSU assistants with area ties. Tim May writes, “Defensive coordinator Luke Fickell, offensive coordinator Ed Warinner and cornerbacks coach/special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs, who has strong ties to the Cincinnati area, are said to be possibilities. And defensive co-coordinator Greg Schiano, who has been linked as a man of interest for the Oregon job, also could be in the mix.”
