Reports arose yesterday from Dennis Dodd of CBS that Texas A&M was interested in James Franklin should a coaching vacancy arise at the end of the season (it will).
Recruiting is a crazy business, people will do anything to create drama— James Franklin (@coachjfranklin) October 13, 2017

James Franklin, however, doesn’t seem to be as interested. Franklin made the above twitter post on Friday, seemingly referring to the chatter.
Likewise, the Penn State athletic department released the following statement:
"Nothing has changed from the commitment that we made to Coach Franklin and the commitment James made to Penn State just before this season started.”
So, as Alex Kirshner of SBNation College Football so eloquently stated yesterday, “Lol no.”
