5 reasons James Franklin isn't a good fit for the Aggies

He's led a resurgence over the last two years, winning the Big Ten championship last season and now has the Lions ranked No. 3 after a 6-0 start.

Penn State and coach James Franklin say they remain committed to each other amid reports that Texas A&M could be interested in the Nittany Lions coach.

Texas A&M's desire to move on will likely be predicated on how it fares the remainder of the season.

Of course, that doesn't mean Penn State is in danger of Franklin leaving.

Penn State coach James Franklin is on a bye week preparing his No. 3 Nittany Lions for a huge three-game stretch against Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive games.

Yes, Sumlin still has his job at the moment, but the pressure continues to mount for the A&M leader. Following the festivities, attendees can then catch all the action from Columbus on the Levitt screen as the now No. 3-ranked Nittany Lions take on the No. 9-ranked Buckeyes.

Supposedly, A&M had expressed interest in Franklin, whose Penn State team is ranked No. 3 in the nation, in the event the Aggies let go of Sumlin.

That's not necessarily a knock on Penn State. It's also worth noting that Franklin signed an extension that takes him through 2022 back in August. He's an attractive candidate for the Aggies, who'd have to pay Penn State a modest $2 million buyout.

Again, all this might be moot, as Sumlin isn't exactly a bottom-of-the-barrel coach. Sumlin has a 48-23 record in five-plus seasons with the school but has failed to do better than an 8-5 record each of the previous three years.
