UPDATE: Luke Fickell had decided to stay at Cincinnati
Did Michigan State just land their next head football coach?
Well, according to a report which just surfaced, MSU Athletic Director Bill Beekman just canceled his flight to Pennsylvania and is instead returning home to East Lansing.
Beekman had previously planned to go from Cincinnati, where he interviewed Luke Fickell on Sunday morning, to Penn State.
Fickell update: Michigan State private jet left Cincinnati around 12:45. A black SUV dropped off two new people (one in heels) that were not on the incoming flight. Today’s flight destination was just changed to Lansing. #Bearcats pic.twitter.com/u8lGH4UEiH

So, what does this mean? Does Beekman have a deal done with Fickell? Earlier reports suggested that Fickell will let MSU know his decision within the next 24-48 hours.
Time will tell!
