the only school I see going after Franklin is Tennessee. Problems are Vol fans hate JF. Vandy will triple his pay before letting him go to UT. TN financial issues with buy outs ect will hinder that. Ark is a possibility but JF seems very happy proving his detractors wrong at Vandy
Vanderbilt’s James Franklin was quick to change the topic when asked yesterday if other schools might be looking to lure him away from Nashville:
“We’ve been dealing with these types of things since we got here. We don’t get into that. Our focus is on Ole Miss and I know our kids are really excited about going down there and playing Coach (Hugh) Freeze’s ball club.”
The second-year head coach did say that he goes into greater detail about his job situation with recruits if they ask.
Reporters have to ask these types of questions even though I’ve yet to hear of any coach saying anything close to this: “You know, as a matter of fact I’ve got my agent talking to the AD of School X right now.”
Franklin just provided the industry standard non-denial denial that’s been doled out by countless coaches in history. Nothing to see here. Move along.
