Vanderbilt’s head coach James Franklin has made a name for himself as a popular up-and-coming coach, with a slightly unconventional personality. Franklin has said and done some strange things already in his time as the Commodores head coach. Prepare to add another strange quote to the list.
Franklin was interviewed by the Tennessean the other day, and in the interview he made a comment that made Mark Stoops’ scholarship offer to a middle schooler seem mild. “If I see a 6-foot-6 man walking in the mall with his wife, and she’s 6-2 and she’s pregnant, I’ll go up and offer their unborn child,” he said. “I’m not exaggerating. I do that all the time. If I go speak to an elementary school, if I’m out at a restaurant, we kind of have fun with it.”
If you’re tall and pregnant, beware. No one is safe.
