Browns coaching search: Browns not only NFL team interested in James Franklin

According to reports, James Franklin, the head coach of the Vanderbilt Commodores has had interest from multiple NFL teams.  The Cleveland Browns have been the most linked with the Commodores head man, but according to reports, Washington and the Houston Texans have expressed interest as well.  Apparently, Franklin interviewed with the Texans before they made their hire of Bill O’Brien.

Washington and Cleveland both have requests in to the university to interview their head man.  Franklin is currently leading the Commodores in the BBVA Compass Bowl against the University of Houston, but there have been reports he will interview for the Penn State job tomorrow.

Franklin has a connection to CEO Joe Banner as he does have two years of NFL experience and was with the Phiadelphia Eagles.  With the sheer amount of interest in Franklin, it is unclear what he really wants to do.  The NFL and bigger schools in college football are all interested in him.  Franklin seems to have his choice of places to go.
