  • With Bold Talk and Home-State Pride, James Franklin Takes Over at Penn State | The Penn Stater Magazine
    a great resource as he settles into the job his former colleague just left Among the noteworthy ground Franklin covered Saturday When asked how long he planned to be at Penn State Franklin made no promises but said all the right things I d still be at Vanderbilt right now if this wasn t such an amazing opportunity We plan on being here a very long time This is my dream job This is where I want to be He also called himself a college guy consciously or not signaling a key difference between himself and O Brien whose NFL ambitions were never a secret Franklin renowned for his recruiting prowess was blunt in describing his philosophy for drawing talent We are going to dominate the state He promised a strong regional and even national recruiting approach but emphasized that the wealth of in state talent meant his priority would be keeping Pennsylvania s best players in Pennsylvania Franklin was asked about the ongoing investigation into a rape case at Vanderbilt involving a number of his former players while a Nashville DA has cleared Franklin of any wrongdoing regarding his knowledge of the alleged assaults some in the media have criticized his hiring in the wake of the Sandusky scandal It couldn t have been a more thorough interview process he said It s the most challenging thing I ve ever been through personally as the father of two daughters and professionally What I think came out of all this through their background checks and all the information they got was that we were honest and up front we made decisions quickly did everything we possibly could to respect the situation and also worked hard and supported the young men that we have in our program Added Joyner This was maybe the most thorough vetting process of any search of any position at this university We utilized multiple third party and independent sources It couldn t have been a more thorough vetting process with our committee and with people that asked hard questions and got honest and true answers My belief without a doubt is that James Franklin is a man of extremely high character Franklin wasn t put off by the fact that Erickson is scheduled to retire and be replaced by an as yet unknown president within the next six months That was a concern he said but what I was sold on and what I believe is that Penn State has a plan and a purpose and a certain type of individual will be attracted to this institution That s what made me very comfortable The status of his Penn State staff including the possibility of retaining longtime defensive line coach Larry Johnson remains up in the air I am fiercely loyal as a person fiercely loyal to the people I ve worked with Franklin said But I m also going to have some discussions with people who are here Franklin joked well we think he was
