James Franklin Says He Will Call Fan's Boss So He Can Attend Vanderbilt Game

Power move.

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin is one of the coolest coaches in college football -- there is absolutely no doubt about that. Tonight, he continued to uphold that reputation by making one fan's day.

Twitter user @jrdavis75 had taken to the social platform to express his disappointment that he was scheduled to work during Vanderbilt's season opener against Ole Miss. Somehow, Franklin saw the tweet and provided a solution -- he would call Davis' boss to free up his schedule. Here is the exchange:

If Franklin follows through -- I have no doubt that he will, this will be a serious power move. Hopefully Davis' boss is just pleased that he gets to talk to Franklin, and Davis doesn't catch any flak for this.
