Vandy coach apologizes for comments on coaches' wives
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
Vanderbilt head football coach James Franklin may not be scoring any points with women after he made some controversial comments Wednesday to a Nashville radio station.
Franklin appeared on 104.5-FM "The Zone" and said he would not hire a potential assistant coach until he has "seen his wife."
"His wife, if she looks the part and she's a D-I recruit, then you've got a chance to get hired. That's part of the deal," Franklin said. "There's a very strong correlation between having the confidence and going up and talking to a woman, and being quick on your feet and having some personality and confidence and being articulate, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling them."
Franklin apologized through his Twitter account Thursday, stating:
"My foot doesn't taste good, I hope I did not offend any1, I love & respect ALL."
