Sources: Vanderbilt wants Gus Malzahn

Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn has an offer to be the next head coach at Vanderbilt, but has told people close to him he hasn't accepted yet, according to sources.

If Malzahn does not take the job, Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin is expected to be offered the job.

Vanderbilt vice chancellor David Williams told the Associated Press that the Commodores expect to announce their new coach within the next day or so. Williams declined to comment when asked Sunday if Vanderbilt has offered the job to anyone.

The Commodores have been searching for a new coach since Robbie Caldwell resigned Nov. 27, and they wanted to announce the new coach before students leave for their winter break later this week.
