Penn State football chat, coach James Franklin edition

Penn State promised a quick search for its next coach, and that’s what it delivered. The Nittany Lions hired James Franklin on Saturday, ending the search after roughly nine or 10 days.

And Franklin appears to be getting right down to business. Reports surfaced late Saturday night and early Sunday morning that at least two Vanderbilt recruits were flipping their commitment to follow Franklin to Penn State.

Plenty of questions remain. What does Franklin’s hiring mean for longtime PSU assistant Larry Johnson and other staffers who currently remain at Penn State? What does Franklin’s arrival mean to Penn State’s crop of 2014 recruits — who at this point have only verbally committed, and who committed to Bill O’Brien? What about the impact of the Vanderbilt rape case?

Bring your questions and comments to Frank Bodani’s weekly Penn State football chat. He’ll field your questions for at least an hour starting at 8 p.m. Monday.
