  • Texas A&M potentially looking at Penn State's James Franklin

He's led a resurgence over the last two years, winning the Big Ten championship last season and now has the Lions ranked No. 3 after a 6-0 start.

Per CBS Sports, Penn State is preparing for Texas A&M to make a run at James Franklin this offseason if the Aggies fire current coach Kevin Sumlin. Meanwhile, Franklin has a $2 million buyout with the Nittany Lions.

With the success that Penn State head coach James Franklin has experienced over the past 16 games, reports on what schools may be trying to woo him away from Happy Valley are bound to appear. With Saquon Barkley leading a vaunted offense, the Nittany Lions have scored at least 31 points in five of their six games.

UNESCO - Announcement of United States withdrawal (12 October 2017)
Azoulay would become the second French leader of the organization since Rene Maheu served as director-general in 1961-74. The proceedings have been overshadowed by the US decision, announced Thursday, to withdraw from the agency.


After coming over from Vanderbilt, Franklin has turned the Nittany Lions into a national powerhouse once again and has them looking like one of the best teams in the country.

"My family and I are very thankful to be a part of the Penn State community", Franklin said in a written statement after the contract announcement. During the summer, Franklin signed a 3-year extension worth nearly $20 million. "I am pleased with the progress our program has made in the community, in the classroom and on the field". It's worth keeping an eye on, but don't expect this to be the last time a major program is after Franklin.

Sumlin, whose 4-2 Aggies have finished with a record of 8-5 in each of the last three seasons was placed firmly on the hotseat this summer when Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward called out his football coach on "The Paul Finebaum Show".
