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...
quote:

"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.
