2014 Penn State Football Schedule - PSU Nittany Lions

James FranklinA New Season Brings a New Coach

Welcome James Franklin!

The 2014 Penn State football season will begin in another country with a brand new head coach. On Jan. 11., the school officially introduced James Franklin as the 16th head coach in the history of the program. Franklin is a Pa. native, having grown up in the Philadelphia suburb of Langhorne and attending East Stroudsburg University to play his collegiate football. 

Franklin is a proven winner, having lead Vanderbilt to bowl games in each of his three seasons at the school. Prior to Franklin's arrival, Vanderbilt only had one winning season from 1983-2010.  

Being a native of Pennsylvania, Franklin grew up watching Penn State football and said it's a tremendous honor to be at the helm of  the program.

During his press conference, Franklin's excitement about returning to his home state was palpable.

"This is my dream job. This is where I want to be," Franklin said.  

Here is the full 2014 Nittany Lions Football schedule.
