Florio: I think Allen already knows who he wants

The Redskins have brought a host of candidates in to interview for their head coaching vacancy, and CSN Washington's Chick Hernandez confirmed another coach is heading to Ashburn.

Franklin has made a meteoric rise at Vanderbilt, an SEC school with little history of winning. Known to be a great motivator and with some NFL ties from a year coaching wide receivers with the Green Bay Packers in 2005, Franklin is rumored to be the leading candidate for the head coach job at Penn State.

At this point it is likely a long-shot Franklin lands with the Redskins, though an impressive interview can change everything. It seems every day a new candidate emerges for the Redskins, stay tuned.
