Report: ‘Mutual Interest’ Between USC and James Franklin

The minute that it was announced that USC had fired head coach Clay Helton, it was just a matter of time before speculation began of USC having interest in Penn State head coach James Franklin.

That’s certainly been the case over the last three days as every national reporter has included Franklin’s name as someone that the USC administration would reach out to.

This morning a different report surfaced that put a different spin on this potentially large story.

Dan Patrick said that morning that “there is mutual interest between USC and Head Coach James Franklin.”

When his name has been linked to different jobs over the last few years, it was just reported that the school had interest in Franklin but this statement by Patrick is different, saying that Franklin has “mutual interest.”

Other names being linked to this major job opening are Iowa State’s Matt Campbell, Jacksonville Jaguars Urban Meyer, Oregon’s Mario Cristobal, former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, Alabama offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien and Cincinnati head coach Luke Fickell.
