Penn State's James Franklin has a response to that Texas A&M chatter

Penn State's James Franklin has a response to that Texas A&M chatter

Penn State women's volleyball senior Haleigh Washington joined elite company on Monday afternoon when she was awarded her eighth career Big Ten Player of the Week honor as announced by the league office, after leading the Nittany Lions to a 2-0 weekend.

One such report surfaced Thursday on in which columnist Dennis Dodd said he had learned that Penn State officials are preparing in case Texas A&M makes a run at Franklin if that university parts ways with head coach Kevin Sumlin.

A&M has devoted huge resources to football since it moved to the SEC, but Franklin, a Pennsylvania native, has Penn State rolling at a high level on the field and in recruiting. Does James Franklin have a compelling reason to leave what he's built at Penn State to join the second-biggest college program in Texas?

The leader of the program has stated on multiple occasions - from his introductory press conference on - that Penn State is his dream job and he wants to build something long-term.

That's not necessarily a knock on Penn State.

It sounds like Franklin is happy with the Nittany Lions, and why wouldn't he be?

The interest shouldn't come as a surprise to Nittany Lion fans. It's also worth noting that Franklin signed an extension that takes him through 2022 back in August. His buyout is $2 million.

He does lack some of the luster he once had. Despite an impressive overall record for the Aggies (44-21, .677), Sumlin may have to finish 8-4 or better to stay in College Station.
