    Tony Franklin leaving Cal, headed to MTSU

    Tony Franklin resigns as Cal?s OC to take same job at MTSU ? CollegeFootballTalk

    Tony and his wife are ready to get back closer to home. Tony's mother is having some health problems and he hated being 3000 miles from her.
    We are glad to have him back closer to home!!

    I heard something about this being his "last destination," and I just have a hard time with that.

    Sure can't blame a guy wanting to get back closer to his family. Especially with his Mom being ill. Best of luck to you Tony.

    I call into question the sanity of anyone moving to TN. Mom not willing to move to CA? That's a no brainer.

    He said he wanted Cal to be his last. Now I think his mama is sick.

    So sensitive. Most aspiring coaches don't go down a level without being forced down a level. Maybe Cal was unhappy with him and he took the first bus out of town.

    Wrong. Tony and HC Dykes are really close. Nice try though. Not really.

    Why would Cal be unhappy with him?
