Penn State reportedly trying to extend James Franklin


While teams across the nation are beginning to look for potential head coaching candidates to fill their vacancies this offseason, the Penn State Nittany Lions are reportedly looking to lock theirs up for the foreseeable future.

According to a report by Dan Wolken of USA Today, the Nittany Lions are “aggressively” trying to lock Franklin in with a new contract extension.

Franklin is 23-14 at Penn State since taking over for Bill O’Brien, who left the team for the NFL’s Houston Texans in 2014.

Penn State had two consecutive 7-6 seasons under Franklin, before this year’s impressive 9-2 run which includes a win over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

If Penn State defeats Michigan State this weekend and Ohio State tops Michigan, Penn State would claim the conference’s East Division title and advance to the Big Ten Championship Game for the first time with a potential shot at the College Football Playoff.

Penn State kicks off at Beaver Stadium tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
