Penn State preparing to keep James Franklin if other schools pursue him

Penn State preparing to keep James Franklin if other schools pursue him

Penn State officials have begun internally preparing for Texas A&M to pursue head football coach James Franklin if Kevin Sumlin departs the university after this season.

"Nothing has changed from the commitment that we made to Coach Franklin and the commitment James made to Penn State just before this season started", the statement said.

BETHLEHEM, PA-Penn State football fans who can't make it to OH on Sat., Oct. 28, can be part of a White Out Viewing Party at SteelStacks.

Franklin outlined in the tweet that he is from Pennsylvania, has the No. 3-ranked team in the country and has the No. 3-ranked recruiting class for 2018. The Lions are 15-1 since suffering a 49-10 loss at MI, a team they will meet in their next game on October 21 at Beaver Stadium.


This past summer Franklin signed a three-year contract extension worth almost $20 million that would keep him in Happy Valley through 2022. His guaranteed annual compensation runs from $4.3 million this season to $6.25 million in 2022. Meanwhile, Franklin has a $2 million buyout with the Nittany Lions.

Since the loss to UCLA, A&M has only lost an eight-point game to Alabama, the Crimson Tide's closest game to date.

Franklin coached Vanderbilt from 2011-13, leading the Commodores to three bowl appearances, winning each of the last two after back-to-back 9-win seasons.
