Penn State Meeting This Week About James Franklin Extension

Penn State football coach James Franklin could be in line for a contract extension.

According to a report from Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated, the school’s compensation committee is set to meet on Friday to determine whether the 45-year-old coach is deserving of a new deal.

After leading the Nittany Lions to an 11-3 record, Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl appearance a season ago, it seems like everything will be in Franklin’s favor.

The news comes after four-star recruit Solomon Enis, the son of former Penn State star Curtis Enis, seemed to reveal Franklin signed a five-year extension following a visit to the school’s campus earlier this summer.

During his three years at Penn State, Franklin holds a 25-15 record.

When you consider the serious NCAA sanctions the Nittany Lions were under when Franklin arrived, it’s incredible to see the turnaround he has led in State College.
