Petitioning Vanderbilt Football Coach James Franklin and 1 other

Vanderbilt Students, Alumni, Fans, and Staff for James Franklin: Keep James Franklin!

Dear World of Football:

Many of us have waited years for Vanderbilt to have back-to-back 9 win seasons, 3 straight bowl games, to beat Florida, to beat TN a lot, to have recruits want to come to Vanderbilt, to watch our team be surrounded by devoted fans, and to watch the Commodore Nation emerge with Vs held high and black and gold abundant. 

James Franklin needs to stay at Vandy. Please don't take him. We've waited too long for him to build teams like this. We've waited too long to#anchordown. I know you want him to coach your team, but please he has the opportunity to be the greatest coach in Vanderbilt history. Buildings and stadiums could be named for him. 


To Coach Franklin: I beg you to stay a Commodore.

To Vanderbilt: Find a way to keep him. 

Letter to
Vanderbilt Football Coach James Franklin
Vanderbilt University Vice Chancellor David Williams

Many of us have waited years for Vanderbilt to have back-to-back 9 win seasons, 3 straight bowl games, to beat Florida, to beat TN a lot, to have recruits want to come to Vanderbilt, to watch our team be surrounded by devoted fans, and to watch the Commodore Nation emerge with Vs held high and black and gold abundant.

Coach Franklin we need you to stay at Vandy. Please don't leave. We've waited too long for someone to build teams like this. We've waited too long to#anchordown. We know other teams want you to coach their teams, but at Vanderbilt you have the opportunity to be the greatest coach in Vanderbilt history. Buildings and stadiums could be named for you. You will be a legend.

We beg you to stay a Commodore. Anchor Down. Seek victory here.

Vice Chancellor Williams: Find a way to keep him.
