Earlier today both CBS Sports and ESPN reported that Vanderbilt coach James Franklin was expected to take the head coach job at Penn State University.

Tonight Vanderbilt Athletic Director David Williams tells the Tennessean that he and Coach Franklin have exchanged text messages and his football coach is “still trying to make a decision” and that he could choose either Penn State or Vanderbilt.

Williams added, “My gut reaction is that he will stay Vanderbilt’s football coach.”
