Vandy Is Expected To Hire Franklin Today

A member of Vanderbilt’s search committee told The Tennessean yesterday that the school’s search is about to be “all wrapped up.”  Numerous sites reported that James Franklin had finally been hired and that a press conference would follow today.

And still we wait.

Jeff Lockridge of The Tennessean caught up with Franklin but Maryland’s offensive coordinator would not confirm that a deal was done.

“I don’t know where you could have gotten that information.  I hope to meet you at some point, but I have nothing to confirm for you at this point.”

Sounds like someone told Franklin that he and the “friends close to Franklin” who kept speaking to The Washington Post needed to zip it for a while. says that VU has indeed offered and Franklin has indeed accepted the job. says the search is over, too.

And the aforementioned Post is already looking at what Franklin’s departure means for Maryland.

So we’re done here, right?  Franklin’s the guy?

Vanderbilt vice chancellor David Williams still won’t say.  “I’m getting close.  I’m not at liberty to say with who.”

According to The Associated Press, Williams said he wants to have a deal done by the end of the weekend.

So two more days of this? 


(Vandy apparently plans to announce its hire on Facebook.  Insert “Farmville” joke… here.)
