If you’ve googled LSU and USC head coaching rumors recently, James Franklin’s name has probably come up.

One of the bigger storylines for the past week and a half has been naming potential candidates for either of the head coaching vacancies. Ed Orgeron is leaving LSU after this season, and Clay Helton was fired from USC in Week 2 after the 42-28 loss to Stanford.

Franklin was asked about where he’s at when it comes to these rumors at practice on Wednesday.

Franklin then deflected the question by saying that he’d like to talk about the rumors sometime.

Here’s the full answer:

Franklin has a win/loss record of 84-43 in his tenth year of head coaching. While Franklin didn’t give a definite answer about the rumors, it will still be an interesting story to follow.
