Penn State coaching search over? 'Major announcement' expected Saturday

Penn State's search for a new football coach might be over.

University officials are summoning reporters who cover the team to Beaver Stadium for what it calls a "major announcement" Saturday afternoon.

Penn State has been talking with Vanderbilt coach James Franklin. Franklin is reportedly expected to be the successor to Bill O'Brien, who left for the NFL. Vanderbilt officials said Thursday night Franklin hadn't made a decision.

Penn State President Rodney Erickson and athletic director Dave Joyner are to attend the news conference.
