After several days many whispers and numerous pump fakes, Vanderbilt has announced their next head football coach.  On Friday morning, the school announced that Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin would take over the Commodores.  For Vanderbilt, the hire comes after a brief flirtation with Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, who ultimately decided to stay with the Tigers.  While Malzahn would have been a fantastic hire, Franklin is still a pretty good one for Vandy.

At Maryland, Franklin helped the Terps with one of the biggest win turnaround in school history.  With freshman quarterback Danny O'Brien, the Terps rebounded from last season's 2-10 to finish 8-4 and come within one game of winning the ACC Atlantic Division.  Franklin is set to be introduced to the media in a press conference later today.

What a lame endorsement!  Franklin was also part of the team that went 2-10, so I don't want to give him a lot of credit for helping with the turnaround.  I think this is a terrible hire and will do nothing for Vandy.  More of the same for a school that should be in the ACC anyway.
