Easter Sunday is tomorrow, and Penn State head football coach James Franklin is hosting an event for children at his house. It features candy, possibly an egg hunt...and Franklin dressed up as the Easter Bunny.

Yup, that's correct. Franklin dressed up as the Easter Bunny and took down the pinata containing candy for all the party-goers. Instead of using a bat, he laid out and tackled the pinata.

That's an incredible sight. Not every day you see a Big Ten head coach in a furry costume tackling a pinata.
