James Franklin to Texas A&M? Franklin, Penn State say no way

Report: Penn State Preparing for Texas A&M to Pursue James Franklin

Penn State officials have begun internally preparing for Texas A&M to pursue head football coach James Franklin if Kevin Sumlin departs the university after this season. This year, Penn State is now ranked No. 3 in the country and could well be headed for a College Football Playoff berth.

Of course, that doesn't mean Penn State is in danger of Franklin leaving.

The festivities kick off with a 3 p.m. visit by the Nittany Lion, who'll get the crowed pumped up and pose for photos.

Supposedly, A&M had expressed interest in Franklin, whose Penn State team is ranked No. 3 in the nation, in the event the Aggies let go of Sumlin. Franklin has established recruiting connections throughout the state and region, and after two mediocre seasons he has found top-5 success with the Nittany Lions.

Additionally, Cohen shared the news of his position during the New Years Eve broadcast on social media. Cohen and Cooper have appeared on one another's shows constantly over the years.

A Penn State spokesman has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Franklin guided the Nittany Lions to the Rose Bowl last season, and he was handsomely rewarded for doing so-in August, he signed a six-year contract extension worth almost $20 million.

If A&M wants to poach Franklin from Penn State, the Aggies would have to pay a $2 million buyout for the Langhorne, Pennsylvania native and pay Sumlin the remainder of his six-year, $30 million dollar contract that he signed in 2013. Sumlin hasn't exactly been treated with much dignity on what many think is his way out of College Station, despite a 48-23 overall record (23-20 in SEC play).
