Vanderbilt Enters 2013 Season with Big Expectations

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Vanderbilt coach James Franklin says he hasn't left for a bigger job because he's in a too good of a situation.

The highly regarded 41-year-old's success has certainly given him the opportunity.

The charismatic Franklin said Thursday "we believe in what we're doing" and that the school has made a "tremendous commitment" to improving the football program.

It's hard to argue with the results. The Commodores -- historically an also-ran in the SEC -- have been to two straight bowl games and are coming off a 9-4 season.

Franklin says he can't discuss four players recently dismissed from the team for an incident last month that is being investigated by police as a possible sex crime. None of the four played last season.
