Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin has done a wonderful job at turning around the Commodores football program and taking them from the door mat of the Southeastern Conference to a potential top 25 team, but now he is also stepping up and doing great things for the fans other than providing an entertaining product on the field.
One fan sent out a message on Twitter that he had to work during the Vanderbilt opener against Ole Miss and Franklin responded with a great offer.
Franklin let the man know that he would reach out to his boss to make sure the employee is able to attend the game. If your boss doesn’t listen to Franklin, then you are working in the wrong place.
Just check out this brilliant exchange:
It’s hard not to love Franklin.
If he treats his players just as well as the fans — which I am sure he does — you don’t need to question why this team loves playing for him and has improved by leaps and bounds since he’s been in control.
