Rumors have been circulating throughout the 2021 college football season around the Penn State football program and their head coach James Franklin.

Franklin was asked once again in Penn State’s QB Club about the rumors of leaving Penn State to be a head coach for another program. Once again, Franklin shut down these rumors by reportedly saying, “I’m not going anywhere.”

When asked about his comments following Penn State’s 28-0 win over Rutgers on Saturday, Franklin said he’d address the situation Tuesday during his presser.

Franklin is in his eighth season as head coach with Penn State. In his time as head coach, Franklin has accumulated an overall record of 67-32 (42-27 in B1G play). He has taken Penn State to a B1G Conference title in 2016 as well as a Rose Bowl game appearance.

Franklin has been rumored to be a prime candidate to take over the head coaching job of the USC Trojans since they fired Clay Helton after their 42-28 loss at home to the Stanford Cardinal.
