Franklin Going Back to Work?

By  | 

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - His time at Auburn behind him, fired Tigers
offensive coordinator Tony Franklin is thinking about getting back
into the business side of football.

Franklin was forced to sell his interest in his consulting firm
on running an offense when he left Troy for Auburn. But Franklin
said he is considering a move back into the business following his
firing at Auburn.

Speaking in an interview published Thursday by the Mobile
Press-Register, Franklin said he remains "befuddled" by what
happened at Auburn.

Franklin was mostly complimentary of head coach Tommy
Tuberville. But Franklin said he should have known Tuberville would
be more loyal to his long-term assistant coaches than to a new
offensive coordinator.

Franklin was fired after the Vanderbilt loss because of Auburn's
struggles with his modified spread offense.
