Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.


NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- According to CBS Sports columnist Bruce Feldman, Vanderbilt football coach James Franklin has "emerged as the clear front-runner" to take over the Penn State job. 


Although naming him as the front-runner, Feldman adds sources say Penn State has yet to offer anyone the job. Former Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak is also expected to interview for the position and is a Penn State alumni member. 


Franklin has also been named as a potential candidate for the Washington Redskins head coach vacancy, but was mum on any interview details while attending the BCS National Championship game yesterday.
