Penn State's James Franklin Suddenly Switching Agents
© Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports
After years of working with agent Trace Armstrong, Penn State head coach James Franklin is changing up his representation while many big college football programs look for a new head coach. Franklin's Nittany Lions are now 5-2 with his name swirling around potential jobs at USC and LSU...

Multiple sources confirm to FootballScoop Monday night that Jimmy Sexton and Creative Artists Agency (CAA) have been tabbed to direct the representation of college football powerhouse coach James Franklin.

The Penn State coach, a prime candidate for the University of Southern Cal vacancy and leader of a Nittany Lions' program that's spent the first half of this season in College Football Playoff contention, previously was represented by Trace Armstrong of Athletes First.

Sexton's client list is a veritable Who's Who of college coaches, including but not limited to Alabama's Nick Saban, Ole Miss' Lane Kiffin, Florida coach Dan Mullen, Georgia's Kirby Smart, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian and formerly Hall of Fame Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, among myriad others.

Sexton's colleagues at CAA also represent some of the brightest young, up-and-coming coaches in the game including Ole Miss offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby, Arkansas' Kendal Briles and Notre Dame defensive coordinator Marcus Freeman, among others who are expected to be viable head coaching candidates in the upcoming 2021-22 coaching cycle.
Where do you see him landing? I think USC.

Seems Franklin is leaving Penn State. He’s not sure where he’s playing his next game.

Penn State will bend over forward to keep him. He'll end up staying and raping them on a huge contract extension.
