USC could be interested in Franklin, but would he go?

Local Sports

This is the final week of the regular season, so the silly season is already starting up. If I had to guess, I’d say James Franklin will be Penn State’s coach for 10 more years. At least. He’s not going to the NFL. Bad fit. There aren’t many other college jobs that are better than ...
