STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Penn State’s search for a new football coach might be over.

Penn State officials are summoning reporters who cover the football team to Beaver Stadium for what it calls a “major announcement” on Saturday.

Penn State has been talking with Vanderbilt coach James Franklin. Several media outlets have reported that Franklin is expected to be Penn State’s replacement for Bill O’Brien, who left for the NFL. Vanderbilt officials said Thursday night that Franklin hadn’t made a decision.

Penn State President Rodney Erickson and athletic director Dave Joyner are scheduled to hold a news conference at 4:15 p.m. Saturday.
