Penn State head coach James Franklin is happy in Happy Valley.
"I'm hoping this thing is going to be over very quick, but, like I told you, I love Penn State," Franklin told reporters in regard to rumors he is a candidate for Florida State's head coaching vacancy. "I love our players. I don't see that changing anytime soon."
The No. 10 Nittany Lions defeated Rutgers 27-6 on Saturday to finish the season 10-2.
247Sports' Brendan Sonnone reported Tuesday that Franklin is Florida State's "top candidate" to replace Willie Taggart, who was fired Nov.
