Press Conference Scheduled for Saturday at 4:15 to Announce New Coach

When athletic director Dave Joyner said the coaching search would be over in a matter of days, he meant it — nine days, to be exact.

Penn State announced a press conference for tomorrow at 4:15 in the Beaver Stadium media room with Dave Joyner and Rodney Erickson to make a “special announcement.” It doesn’t take a genius to take a guess as to what that announcement might be.

Soon-to-be-former Vanderbilt coach James Franklin is expected to be the third man up on the podium with Joyner and Erickson tomorrow. If Penn State has announced a press conference time, it likely means that Franklin and the university have reached a contract agreement. That contract is expected to become finalized tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. at a special Board of Trustees compensation meeting.

We’ll have full coverage of the new coach here and on our Twitter feed throughout the rest of the day and tomorrow.
