Vanderbilt AD: Franklin remains Commodores' coach
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Vanderbilt athletic director David Williams says James Franklin remains the Commodores' football coach as of Thursday afternoon and that Franklin has informed him that he has not accepted another job offer.

Williams says that he has heard all of the reports and knows that Penn State officials have been talking with Franklin. The Vanderbilt athletic director says Franklin called him earlier Thursday to tell him reports the coach had accepted another job were "inaccurate."
