After failing to land a job following his firing as head coach of the Tennessee Titans, it appears Mike Vrabel may lend a helping hand to a college program run by his good friend.

Wisconsin head coach Luke Fickell, who is very close with Vrabel, recently revealed on ESPN Wisconsin’s “Wilde & Tausch” that Vrabel may work with the program in an unspecified role.

“I talked to (Vrabel), I think, on Saturday, and we hadn’t communicated for probably a week or so just because the process was going,” Fickell said. “He sounded like a new man. And I’m not sure exactly if this was his choice, or what it is the future looks like. But I know that we’re going to have a visitor here that’s going to spend a little bit of time, hopefully around us. Starting, coming up in the spring and some things like that, see how much, how deep we can get involved with my buddy and get him around here.”

Vrabel’s options for a head-coaching gig dried up after the three teams that interviewed him, the Carolina Panthers, Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons, all went in a different direction.

It was revealed by The Athletic’s Dianna Russini that Vrabel’s style didn’t fit with the teams he met with, but she also included some wild insight from an unnamed general manager who stated the intimidation factor from Vrabel’s physical appearance may have hurt his chances to land another job.

Whatever the case may be, it looks like Vrabel might be in some sort of an advisory role at Wisconsin, which is a far cry from where many thought he would be upon being fired by the Titans.
