Luke Fickell is staying put.

The former Ohio State All-American turned defensive coordinator and current Cincinnati head coach was reportedly offered the head coaching position at Michigan State, which would have paid him $25 to $30 million over five years.

He turned it down.

As first reported by Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel, Fickell has decided to stay at Cincinnati, where he just guided the Bearcats to their second-straight 11-win season.

After missing on Fickell, Michigan State is now back to the drawing board.
