Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin told Clay Travis on 104.5 The Zone that he evaluates the appearance of coaches' wives during the interview process. Franklin said...

"I've been saying it for a long time, I will not hire an assistant until I see his wife. If she looks the part and she's a D1 recruit, then you got a chance to get hired. That's part of the deal. There's a very strong correlation between having the confidence, going up and talking to a women, and being quick on your feet and having some personality and confidence and being articulate and confident, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling him."
Let the backlash begin.

Hey, if a dude can win over an OT10 off the field, he has to be able to spout a good line of bull. he might be able to pull a good recruit also...

I'd like some "evidence" of his hires.
And that is idiotic to me to judge a candidate based on the attractiveness of his wife.

That is not exactly what he said. He was talking about recruiting and how the wife of a coach is so important in that process.

BTW...there are no consequences to Franklin for anything by his athletic director.
