NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt vice chancellor David Williams says he's closing in one person in his search for a football coach in a deal he hopes to have concluded by the end of the weekend.
Williams told The Associated Press on Thursday night that he wasn't at liberty to say which coach Vanderbilt was working to hire. But he says he's focusing on one person while still talking to agents and lawyers.
The Tennessean quoted John Ingram, a member of Vanderbilt's board of trust and on the search committee, as saying the Commodores are about to wrap up a deal with Maryland offensive coordinator James Franklin.
Franklin told The Tennessean he couldn't confirm that information.
