Jim Gardner is a veteran news anchor in Philadelphia at ABC affiliate WPVI. Gardner is well-respected in this area and he has had the opportunity to conduct one-on-one interviews with presidents and international dignitaries over his career. This week he added Penn State head coach James Franklin to that impressive list.
Gardner asks Franklin about taking on the role of face of the university and his Philadelphia area roots. For those who have been keeping up on all of Franklin’s media opportunities since taking over the position of head coach there may not be a whole lot of new information or stories shared here, but if you have 12 minutes to kill, it is still worth watching. Franklin did the interview while wearing flip-flops. Unrivaled.
You can see the full interview below. The original story from 6 ABC can be read here.

Penn State head coach James Franklin is working his way through the ESPN car wash up in Bristol, Connecticut today.
