Franklin Expected To Leave Terps For Vandy

According to the Washington Post, James Franklin, Maryland's offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting, is expected to become Vanderbilt's next head football coach, a source close to Franklin with knowledge of the details of the offer said Thursday.

As of Thursday evening, Franklin had yet to sign the contract, the source said, but he was expected to travel to Vanderbilt on Friday. John Ingram, a Vanderbilt Board of Trust and search committee member, told the Nashville Tennessean, "We're about to have this all wrapped up."

Franklin has offered positions on his Vanderbilt coaching staff to four Maryland assistants - none has yet decided whether to accept - according to a source with direct knowledge of the offers. Coach Ralph Friedgen, who has been on the road recruiting, has called a staff meeting for Friday morning.
