It’s rare that an SEC coach leaves to take another job in another conference, but Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin is doing just that.
Franklin will become the next head coach at Penn State, according to multiple reports. The deal has been agreed upon, but they are working out the specifics of the contract.
Franklin led Vanderbilt to a 24-15 record in three seasons, and he and his staff – along with the players – have helped the Commodores rewrite their record books.
Several coaches Vanderbilt is likely to pursue are Clemson OC Chad Morris, Duke head coach David Cutcliffe, Vanderbilt DC Bob Shoop and Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre, among others.
