Prior to becoming Penn State’s head football coach, James Franklin spent three years as the head coach of Vanderbilt, where he is credited with turning the Commodores from arguably the worst program in the conference to a school that had back-to-back nine win seasons. He also led Vanderbilt to three straight bowl games and consecutive bowl wins for the first time in school history.
Despite no longer being at the school, Franklin still supports Vanderbilt athletics, as evidenced by his appearance at Vandy baseball’s College World Series game on Saturday night against Louisville.

It’s nice to see that Franklin still cheers on the Commodores, even going as far as to throw up the school’s VU hand sign. As for the game, Vanderbilt won, 5-3, and moves on to face UC Irvine on Monday night.
