Franklin poised to take Vanderbilt job

Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin has told officials at Maryland that he plans to accept the Vanderbilt head coaching job, ESPN's Joe Schad reported Tuesday.

Franklin was thought to be the front-runner after Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn turned down a lucrative offer to stay at Auburn. Franklin has been the Terps' offensive coordinator and play-caller the past three seasons.
