Penn State Board of Trustees to Hold Subcommittee Meeting on Tuesday

While Penn State head coach James Franklin will meet with the media on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m., the PSU Board of Trustees will hold a subcommittee virtual meeting later in the day, Ben Jones reported.

With seemingly every major head coach opening — namely USC, LSU and now Florida — heavily involving Franklin’s name, he told the Penn State quarterback’s club that he wouldn’t be going anywhere, and after Saturday’s 28-0 win over Rutgers, he said he’d elaborate further on his contract situation on Tuesday.

The BoT subcommittee meeting, which is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, has a “compensation meeting agenda” tag on the BoT’s website.

In the wake of Michigan State’s Mel Tucker’s reported 10-year, $95 million contract extension, fending off interest from other programs himself, the arms race in college coaching could be heating up.

With one of the top recruiting classes in college football in 2022, and a strong foundation already set for 2023, Franklin’s moniker as a master recruiter has remained true. Even if fans would like greater success on the football field.

Franklin signed a six-year contract with Penn State in February of 2020, with his average salary reaching above $6 million by the contract’s expiration, but it appears that figure could be higher — much higher — in the years to come.
