CS – Breaking: Do not apply for a job on James Franklin’s staff if your wife is not a smoke show. While in Destin on Wednesday afternoon, Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin told Clay Travis on 104.5 The Zone that he evaluates the appearance of coaches’ wives during the interview process. Franklin, in a relaxed mood near the beach, explained, “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 women, 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.”
I like the cut of this Vandy coach’s jib. Seems like my kind of guy. And he is 95% right here. You can tell a shitload about a guy by how hot is wife or girlfriend is. But you got to keep in mind it’s all relative to how good looking the dude is. Basically does he have a wife who is hotter than him just based on looks alone. Take me for example. I’m at least 3 weight classes out of my division. Always have been. That just means I’m a living room guy. Get me in the living room and I win. But if a good looking guy has an ugly wife that obviously means he’s a loser and can’t sell himself and will never get big time recruits. As crazy as it sounds it’s 100% true.
