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

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- According to multiple sources who spoke with The Scranton Times-Tribune, Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has been offered the Penn State job. The report states Franklin met with those in charge of the hiring process in Destin, Florida yesterday and though no official announcement has been made, Franklin is expected to make his decision sometime today. 

With multiple rumors swirling yesterday, it seems one was right. Many Penn State supporters and writers were anxiously tracking a flight which allegedly had Franklin flying from the Penn State campus to Destin. 

For their part, Vanderbilt has reportedly made a serious effort to retain Franklin and it could be a two-horse-race. Franklin was also expected to interview with the Washington Redskins, but the hiring of Jay Gruden today takes them out of consideration.
