Past, present Penn State players react to Franklin hiring
After a nine day coaching search, James Franklin was officially introduced as the head football coach at Penn State today. Franklin, who coached at Vanderbilt from 2011-2013, was introduced to the public in a news conference Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium.
With any coaching change comes plenty of reaction from both current and former players, as well as the media. We went to twitter to get some of those reactions, and to no one’s surprise, it is a bit of a mixed bag.
Before we get to the top Twitter reactions, here is our popular video of the top moments from Franklin’s press conference:
