Vanderbilt's James Franklin wants Penn State job

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin was one of the hot names in coaching rumors and linked to multiple jobs. He was in consideration for the Washington Redskins head coaching job, and they reached out to him and asked permission to interview him, yet never did.

The Redskins have since hired Jay Gruden as their head coach and ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter said that he expects Franklin to stay in college and not make the leap to the NFL.  That doesn’t necessarily mean Franklin stays with Vanderbilt ever, he suggests that Penn State could be a landing spot for Franklin. Their head coach Bill O’Brien made the leap to the NFL and landed the Houston Texan’s head coaching job.

According to Joe Schad of ESPN, Franklin would prefer to end up at Penn State.
