James Franklin, Penn State Committed to Each Other Amidst Reports

See, told y’all.

NCAA Football: Penn State at Northwestern Jim Young-USA TODAY Sports

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).

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.”
