University of Cincinnati football coach Luke Fickell is doing his best to put some structure in place each day as the impact of the coronavirus outbreak continues.

That includes first and foremost how he and his wife, Amy, are taking care of the couple's six children.

"It's stay out of the way of Mom, because she has a routine and sometimes I just mess it up," Fickell said. "She likes to say I don't discipline quite as well as she does so I think sometimes she is like, 'I wish you could just stay out of my way.' But, more than anything it's just trying to keep them busy and try to set some new semblance of a schedule with no school but still school for what to do."

Fickell joined the WCPO High School Insider Podcast last week after he and his family returned home from a Florida vacation.

Fickell discussed how he plans each day this week, how he's stayed connected with his players and coaches, how the stay-at-home order has impacted recruiting and how he's reflected on life during this unprecedented time.

"Hopefully, as this thing gets through and done and at some point in time we'll appreciate the things that we have a lot more because of what we haven't had the opportunity to do," Fickell said.
