Cincinnati hired Central Michigan OC Gino Guidugli to serve as RB coach.

Guidugli took something of an odd path to get here. Central Michigan promoted him from running backs coach to offensive coordinator just before Christmas. Now back to coaching up backs with the Bearcats. He played quarterback at Cincinnati from 2001-2004 and has been with Central Michigan since 2009.

In an interview on WSNP 105.5 FM, former Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville indicated that he has no plans to coach in the near future.

Tuberville, 62, stepped down as Cincinnati's head coach in December. He is seriously considering a run at the Alabama governor-ship. "I’ve been there done that for many many years in college football. I don’t know what I’m going to do. Talking about this governor thing, I’m kind of testing the wind," Tuberville said, adding that he "want[s] to do a little something different." He didn't rule out possibly coaching again down the road, but that a return to the collegiate ranks doesn't appear to be on his radar right now.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Cincinnati C Deyshawn Bond to Patrick Lewis.

"Smaller than desired with below average length and that could hurt his draft stock, but he's a plus in pass protection and decent in run blocking and could become an eventual starter with time," Zierlein wrote. Bond is a four-year starter who blends strength and quickness but lacks size and extension.

East Carolina has decided not to hire former Cincinnati RB coach Gerad Parker.

Parker had reportedly stepped down as Bearcats running back coach on Friday, in anticipation of taking a job as wide receiver coach with the Pirates. That won't be happening, now, as Parker was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Prior to his brief stint with Cincinnati -- he was hired just last month -- he worked as interim head coach at Purdue following the Boilermakers' firing of HC Darrell Hazell this past autumn.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reports that former Cincinnati HC Tommy Tuberville is considering running for the Alabama governorship in 2018.

"Everybody wants non-politicians now. Eighty-percent of it is name recognition," a member of Tuberville's camp told Dodd. The 62-year-old stepped down as Cincinnati's head coach at the beginning of December following a 4-8 campaign. While his most recent coaching stop was with the Bearcats, he has the requisite Alabama roots, too, having posted an 85-40 record during his nine years at Auburn (1999-2008). Dodd relays that a statewide phone poll is currently being conducted to assess the feasibility of a political run. Tuberville's decision as to whether or not to run figures to be made within the next few weeks.

Cincinnati hired former Tennessee defensive backs coach Willie Martinez as cornerbacks coach.

The Vols parted ways with Martinez last month. He was a long-time top assistant at Georgia (2001-09), where he spent five years as defensive coordinator. Martinez is known to be a strong recruiter.

Cincinnati signed four-star 2017 ATH Jarell White.

White committed to Cincinnati just after New Year's and stuck by his word through National Signing Day. While Rivals has yet to lock in a position for the multi-talented 5-foot-10, 200-pound baby Bearcat, Scout.com lists him as a running back. The venerable recruiting outlet notes that White is "not a home run hitter, but a grind it out, tough back who gets upfield." He is more of a bruiser than a fleet cruiser.

Ohio State junior T Kyle Trout transferred to Cincinnati.

Trout will graduate this spring, which means he's immediately eligible to play. He has two years of eligibility remaining. Trout follows Torrance Gibson as former Buckeyes who have transferred to Cincinnati to play for former OSU assistant Luke Fickell, now the Bearcats' head coach. Trout was a four-star recruit ranked as the No. 19 offensive tackle in the country coming out of high school.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline indicated that Cincinnati QB Gunner Kiel did not look like a draft-able prospect during East-West Shrine Game practices.

Kiel has flashed big arm talent in the past, but he was buried on the depth chart for most of the 2016 season and from the way Pauline paints it, the 6-foot-4, 225-pounder was abysmal during Shrine Game work this week. Wrote the analyst, "The week of Shrine practice was just an extension of the troubles and struggles Kiel has experienced the past year and a half. His performance was inconsistent-to-poor all three days." And then the wince-worthy nail in the coffin: "I leave Shrine practice believing Kiel has confirmed he won’t be selected at any point in the draft this April."

Football Scoop reports that Cincinnati has hired Purdue WR coach Gerad Parker to serve as RB coach.

Parker finished out the 2016 campaign as Purdue's interim head coach following the mid-season firing of Darrell Hazell. He initially linked up with the Boilermakers in 2013. Now joining Luke Fickell's staff at Cincinnati, the 36-year-old Parker should serve as a useful asset on staff, as he already has a familiarity with the region in terms of recruiting.

Former Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB/WR Torrance Gibson will transfer to Cincinnati.

The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder was a five-star recruit out of high school but never panned out at OSU. He redshirted as a freshman in 2015 and served a university-issued suspension in 2016. New Bearcats HC Luke Fickell is eager to give Gibson a chance at redemption, however, and will reportedly shift him back to quarterback. Gibson apparently has a chance to be eligible for Cincinnati as soon as next season. He first must take a few classes at Cincinnati State Community College. We'll update you on his status, as Gibson could have a big immediate impact at his new program if he's cleared.
Jan 12 - 12:49 PM

Redshirt freshman QB/WR Torrance Gibson is not enrolled at Ohio State and is unlikely to return to the school, according to multiple reports.

Beat writer Jeremy Birmingham would give "pretty good odds" on Gibson ending up at Cincinnati under new head coach Luke Fickell, previously with the Buckeyes. Gibson previously signed a letter of intent with a JUCO program.
Jan 10 - 11:21 AM

Cincinnati named former Purdue LB coach Marcus Freeman defensive coordinator.

New Bearcats HC Luke Fickell is a famous developer of NFL linebackers, so his interest in Freeman is notable. The pair have a lot to do, as Cincinnati's offense was quite awful in 2016.
Jan 5 - 1:39 PM

Football Scoop reports that Cincinnati will hire Ohio State quality control assistant Joker Phillips to serve as wide receivers coach.

Phillips continues to hop from job to job. He joined Ohio State last summer after spending time with the Browns and Florida Gators. At Cincinnati, he will reunite with Luke Fickell, who accepted the Bearcats' open head-coaching gig in December. Phillips will bring a strong recruiting element to bear once he joins Fickell's staff.
