And Meyer wouldn’t be pleased if he did.

“He did not interview,” Meyer told the media following practice Wednesday night. “He better not have.”

Meyer said he has not contacted by FAU. He added that there is “absolutely no interviewing going on” by his assistants during the regular season.

Fickell is reportedly Florida Atlantic’s top target to fill its coaching vacancy.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported earlier in the day that FAU athletic director and former OSU athletics staff member Pat Chun flew to Columbus to interview him Tuesday.
