Reports stating that Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin is expected to accept an offer are not being confirmed by Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt Vice Chancellor of Athletics David Williams was asked via text message if there has been an offer or an agreement with Franklin as of late Tuesday afternoon.

“Has not,” Williams texted.

Vanderbilt director of external relations Rod Williamson called the reports “premature.”

Franklin, 38, would be the first African-American head coach of a major sport at Vanderbilt.

It would be the first head coaching job for Franklin. He emerged as the second option last week to Gus Malzahn, who withdrew from consideration Monday and agreed to a new deal to remain Auburn’s offensive coordinator.

Franklin would become the Commodores’ youngest coach since Watson Brown, who was 36 during his first season in 1986.

Williams and Vandy are safe so far...maybe Mayland will up the ante and keep Franklin like Auburn keep Malzahn...we don't want Franklin

Just not Franklin.....he will have no leverage and will not sell tickets or bring magic back to the program...Sports radio shows are already killing Vandy for this hire and you know why...they just can't say on the air.

They go from trying to get Malzhan to trying to get a nobody OC? There's so many better candidates out there, especially for the reported 3 mil a year they're offering.

I'm back, :lanekiffin: ers.

Also, while Maryland returned to success on the field, season ticket sales declined for a fifth straight year. Maryland has fallen more than $500,000 short of season ticket sales projections each of the past two seasons. And fans filled Byrd Stadium to 75 percent capacity only once this past season.
Perhaps as a result, Maryland, despite finishing in a three-way tie for third place in the ACC, dropped to the eighth slot in the ACC bowl selections. The Terrapins will play East Carolina (6-6) in the Military Bowl at RFK Stadium on Dec. 29. John Donovan, Maryland's running backs coach, is considered a favorite to assume offensive coordinator duties in the bowl game.
Franklin impressed Vanderbilt officials after two in-person interviews with them. He emerged as one of two finalists - the other being Stanford offensive coordinator Greg Roman - before the school made a long-shot attempt to land Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn late last week.
A source familiar with the search said Malzahn verbally accepted Vanderbilt's offer that would have paid him close to $3 million annually over the weekend but that further contract negotiations prevented the move from becoming official at that time. Malzahn withdrew from consideration Monday, and Auburn more than doubled his salary (from $500,000 to about $1.3 million per year), according to ESPN.com.
David Williams, Vanderbilt's vice chancellor for athletics, was enamored of Franklin since meeting him while Franklin worked as Kansas State's offensive coordinator in 2006 and 2007. Franklin would become the first African-American head coach of any sport at Vanderbilt.
"Even back then, he was putting into motion a plan of what it would take to be a head coach," Williams said in a telephone interview last week. "The other thing is, we were aware that he is the coach-in-waiting at Maryland. Obviously, somebody else has recognized some of the same things that we recognized."

Not sure what Maryland's ticket sales have to do with the OC....

If ya'll had a shot at Roman, he should be at Vandy now, not Franklin.

You should open up a Vanderbilt forum and put this in there.

If Vandy was throwing $3 million out there, they could afford to steal a MUCH better coach.
They're willing to pay more than Florida.


I'll be shocked if they end up going with James Franklin.

Just heard David Williams on the radio for about 30 minutes talking about the Vandy search.

-he said they didn't offer GM 3 mill for 7 years...he is not a proven HC to offer that much...Nick Saban.. yes , Gus Malzahn ..no

- he said Franklin has not been offered the job, nor has anybody been offered the job..most leaks are hog wash coming from other coaches.

-he said Vandy is committed to have a first class football program no matter who is named head coach and will pay the head coach and his assistants very well...in line with other SEC programs

Hogan feels a whole lot better after listening to Mr. Williams for about 30 minutes on 104.5 in Music City
