As we enter the final week of the 2021 college football regular season, with the Penn State Nittany Lions slated to play the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday, many Penn State fans have questions about the status of certain coaches going forward — including head coach James Franklin.
Before last week’s game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, there was a report that said Franklin intended to return to Penn State for the 2022 season.
Another twist to the ongoing James Franklin saga: Franklin got up at the State College Quarterback Club lunch on Wednesday and offered his firmest declaration yet on job speculation, saying "I'm not going anywhere." The crowd of 175-200 gave him a rousing ovation. #PSU
