James Franklin is worth every single penny of this $38.2 million extension. He has Penn State playing football at a very high level.

They’re also coming off of a great season that saw them finish with 11 wins. To say things are going well for Penn State would be an understatement.

Given how decimated the program was a few years back, it’s incredible to see how far they’ve come under Franklin.

He’s a damn good coach, PSU is winning with him running the show and the future looks bright. Again, he’s worth every single penny.
