James Franklin wasn't afraid to speak his mind to Clay Travis on 104.5 The Zone this past Wednesday.
The Vanderbilt head coach said that if he were to hire an assistant, he would have to look at their wife first, as it apparently plays a factor.
"I've been saying it for a long time, I will not hire an assistant until I see his wife. If she looks the part and she's a D1 recruit, then you got a chance to get hired. That's part of the deal. There's a very strong correlation between having the confidence, going up and talking to a woman, and being quick on your feet and having some personality and confidence and being articulate and confident, than it is walking into a high school and recruiting a kid and selling him."
Obviously, the comments caused some controversy, so here is what Franklin posted on Twitter Thursday afternoon:
