I'd like to see Chad go there(to Vandy), we certainly haven't had any problem against him. His O averages about 17 points a game against us.

Franklin needs to man up and freaking make a decision already. This is already getting annoying.

Vandy has a $3 billion endowment and the lowest debt in the SEC. They can absolutely afford the buyout.

The huge buyout on Morris' contract is apparently to go to another school as a non-head coach. Apparently if he gets a job as head coach the buyout is pretty insignificant.

Word is that things are heating up in terms of Morris being hired as the OC at Texas. Again, just rumors, but supposedly Strong likes the idea and even more interesting is the rumor that Morris has let it be known that he has interest in the job.

Another tidbit is that Locksley is under consideration for a position at Texas. Seems unlikely, but that would likely put us way ahead for Prince.

I hadn't thought about that, but I have thought Chad might be holding back for a gig in Texas. That would be interesting. Even more interesting to see who dabo would try to bring in.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Texas could flip the bill, though.

And more from Vandy:

As of Thursday afternoon, James Franklin is still head coach at Vanderbilt, according to athletic director David Williams, and Williams expects it to stay that way.
Reports Thursday morning stated that Franklin is expected to accept the head coaching offer at Penn State.
Williams joined 104.5 The Zone in Nashville and said that Franklin called him Thursday to say he has not accepted a job at another program, and that those reports were not true.


“We’re going to have a great football program here,” Williams said. “I have a great football coach. When we open up against Temple, I expect James Franklin to be on the sideline of that game, and not coaching Temple. If by chance he’s not, we’ll have somebody in there. To the fans: Just hang in there with us. He’s our football coach. Let’s treat him as our football coach until we know something different.
“James reached out to me today to tell me, ‘The things you’re hearing that I have accepted a job are untrue.’ I didn’t make that call. He made the call to me. He knew what was being said. He’s not saying, ‘I might not go,’ he said, ‘I want you to know, what you’re hearing right now is untrue.' That has happened a number of times since we’ve been here.”

Asked what he would tell the parent of a recruit, Williams made it clear he’s doing “everything possible to make sure he’s our football coach.”

I think the problem at Penn State is they haven't approved the hire...yet.

FootballScoop Staff ‏@footballscoop 1h At Penn State, sources say they are getting all necessary clearances. Might take 24 hours (or even until Saturday) but Franklin is their guy

I was curious so I looked it up and just in case anyone else is curious...

The way I understand Morris' buyout is if he leaves today for another assistant job he has to pay back the school his annual salary ($1.3 Mil) x years left on contract (4). So that would be a buyout of $5.2 million.

If he were to leave for another assistant position anywhere between Jan 1, 2015 - Dec 31, 2017, the buyout is 25% annual pay x remaining years left on contract.

If he leaves for head coaching gig, there is no buyout.

I'll bet Steele is already watching film in preparation for their game at Clemson next year. I'm sure most of you remember, but just in case you don't, he was thrown under the bus by Clemson in epic fashion, as they put out the information that he had a breakdown during the Orange Bowl and started calling signals from when he was with the Panthers.

Washington Redskins: Jay Gruden said today, "I'm going to interview a lot of people." He noted that he's had 'about 350 texts' from people that want to coach for the Washington Redskins. Gruden noted that despite reports that surfaced this morning, he has not hired an offensive coordinator.

------------------------------------------------

Jim Tressel:
“I think I’m at a moment in my life where, interestingly enough, there are a lot of things swirling around,” he said. “We’re having an administrative change at the University of Akron. There are changes in my former profession going on. Obviously it trickles down to the staff. I think it’s going to be an interesting time in the next few weeks, next month. I wouldn’t count anything out.”
