Penn State, James Franklin affirm commitment after Texas A&M reports

Franklin, in his fourth season at PSU, is coming off a Big Ten championship in 2016 and has the Nittany Lions ranked No. 3 this year, so it makes sense that A&M would be interested in his services.

Penn State coach James Franklin and the school denied reports that Franklin would be being considered as a potential replacement for Sumlin at Texas A&M. The report, written by Dennis Dodd (who visited State College this week) can basically be translated to this: Penn State believes Texas A&M may go after Franklin and is doing what it can to prepare for that possible pursuit.

Yes, Sumlin still has his job at the moment, but the pressure continues to mount for the A&M leader.

Franklin, 45, is 31-15 in three-plus seasons with the Nittany Lions. Things are pretty cushy for Franklin in Happy Valley. His buyout is $2 million.

This past summer Franklin signed a three-year contract extension worth almost $20 million that would keep him in Happy Valley through 2022.

"My family and I are very thankful to be a part of the Penn State community", Franklin said in a written statement after the contract announcement. "I look forward to diligently working with President Barron and Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour on implementing a plan that puts our University and our student-athletes in the best position to compete on the field and in life".

Again, all this might be moot, as Sumlin isn't exactly a bottom-of-the-barrel coach. There's no guarantee that he gets fired-he's 48-23 in five-plus seasons in College Station-but still, A&M has finished 8-5 for three straight seasons, so if Sumlin can't get past eight wins, he could well get the axe.
