Vandy in talks with Terps OC Franklin

Vanderbilt vice chancellor David Williams says the Commodores are talking with Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin about the Commodores head coaching job.

But Williams says the school still doesn't have a coach - yet.

Williams told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Vanderbilt has been talking with Franklin throughout the search for a new coach. Williams calls it a ''fluid process.'' But Williams says if Franklin is telling people he is coming to Vanderbilt, he hasn't informed university officials.

The vice chancellor was in Birmingham, Ala., for Southeastern Conference meetings Tuesday.


Vanderbilt is trying to replace Robbie Caldwell, who was forced to resign Nov. 27 at the end of a 2-10 season.
