Coaching career

Early career

After graduating from Pittsburg State, Franchione served as the head football coach at Miller High School in Miller, Missouri from 1973–74. He then served as an assistant coach at Mulvane High School in Mulvane, Kansas in 1975. From 1976–77, he served as the head coach at Peabody High School in Peabody, Kansas. In 1978, Franchione was hired to be an assistant coach at Kansas State University, a position he would hold until he was hired to be the head coach at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas in 1981. During his two years at Southwestern, he led the team to a 14-4-2 record, a Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference title, and a Sunflower Bowl win. His 9 wins in 1982 tied the school record and was Southwestern's most since 1967.[1] United States simply as football, is a competitive team sport that is both fast-paced and strategic. ...

After two seasons as offensive coordinator at Tennessee Tech in 1983 and 1984, Franchione was hired as the head coach at his alma mater, Pittsburg State University. During his five seasons with the Gorillas, he led the team to a 53-6-0 record, 37-1-0 in conference, won five conference titles, and was named NAIA National Coach of the Year twice. He tied the school record for victories in a single season three times before breaking it with the 12 victories of his 1989 team.[2] Currently, Pittsburg State is the only team that Franchione has led to three consecutive winning seasons.[3] In 1990, he joined Texas State University, where he spent two years and compiled a 13-9 record.

New Mexico

In 1992, Franchione took his first head coaching job in Division I-A at the University of New Mexico. In his six seasons at New Mexico, he led the Lobos to a 33–36 record, including a 9-4 mark in 1997, which earned the Lobos a WAC Mountain Division Championship and an invitation to play in the Insight.com Bowl, their first bowl berth since 1961.[4] During the 1996 and 1997 seasons, his roster included current NFL Pro Bowler Brian Urlacher.

TCU

In 1998, Franchione became the head coach at TCU and promptly turned their fortunes around, going from 1-10 the year before to 7-5 and a berth in the Sun Bowl, where the Horned Frogs defeated Southern California and set the record for least rushing yards allowed in a bowl game. He again led the Horned Frogs to a bowl game in 1999 on the wings of junior tailback LaDainian Tomlinson, who led the nation in rushing. Going into the 2000 season, the Frogs were being touted as a possible BCS Bowl contender before a disappointing loss to San Jose State. Despite the loss, the Frogs finished the season 10-1, were co-champions of the Western Athletic Conference, and accepted a bid to the Mobile Alabama Bowl. Before the scheduled bowl game, Franchione accepted a head coaching offer by the University of Alabama. Franchione was voted by TCU players to lead the team in the bowl game, which Franchione's defensive coordinator and newly-named head coach Gary Patterson supported; however, after some controversy at the Heisman Trophy ceremony, TCU Athletic Director Eric Hyman reversed the vote, allowing Patterson to coach the bowl game.[5][6] During Franchione's three years at TCU, he led the Horned Frogs to their first bowl victory since 1939, their first top 25 finish since 1959, and held the highest winning percentage among TCU coaches since Francis Schmidt (1929–1933).[7][8] In LaDainian Tomlinson's senior season in 2000, he led the NCAA for the second time with 2,158 yards and 22 touchdowns while piling on 354 yards receiving. He won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's best running back, and was a finalist for the Heisman, but came in fourth. He completed his college career with 5,263 rushing yards, ranking sixth in NCAA Division I history.[9] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

Alabama

Franchione became the head coach at the University of Alabama in 2001 and led the team, which had posted a 3-8 record the prior season, to a 7-5 record in 2001 and a 10-3 record in 2002. The 2001 team won the Independence Bowl, which became Alabama's first bowl win after five seasons. The 2002 team finished with a 6-2 conference record, placing first in the West Division of the Southeastern Conference. However, due to NCAA sanctions resulting from violations of the previous Alabama head coach, Mike DuBose, the 2002 team was ineligible for postseason games, including the SEC Championship Game. The turnaround success Franchione made prompted Alabama officials to offer Franchione a 10-year contract extension worth $15 million. Franchione, however, did not sign the offer. Following Alabama's victory over the University of Hawaii and the dismissal of Texas A&M head coach R. C. Slocum, Franchione resigned at Alabama and was named head coach at Texas A&M after publicly stating that he would not leave. His decision was influenced by the NCAA sanctions placed on Alabama, which included a two-year bowl ban, the loss of 21 scholarships over three years, and five years probation. Franchione did not return to Alabama after interviewing for the job, instead informing his players of his decision to accept the job at Texas A&M via video teleconference.[10] The University of Alabama (also known as Alabama, UA or colloquially as Bama) is a public coeducational university located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA.

Texas A&M

2003–2006 seasons

Upon being hired by Texas A&M, Franchione brought the majority of his coaching staff with him to College Station for the 2003 season. Strength and Conditioning Coach Ben Pollard declined an offer to go to College Station and elected to remain in Tuscaloosa. Franchione signed a contract that was set to pay him a yearly salary of $1.7 million through 2010.[11] The Aggies finished the 2003 season with a 4–8 record, including a nationally televised 77–0 loss to Oklahoma, the worst loss in A&M's history. The season also marked the first losing season for the Aggies after 21 years.[12] College Station is a city in Brazos County, Texas, situated in Central Texas. ...

In the 2004 season, Franchione attempted the rebuilding process as the team improved to a 7–5 record, and a 5–3 record in conference play, including a 35–34 overtime loss to unranked Baylor at Waco, ending a 13-game winning streak the Aggies had with Baylor. The Aggies ended up advancing to the Cotton Bowl to play #17 Tennessee in the postseason, but lost 38-7. Following the bowl game, A&M officials extended Franchione's contract through 2012 and raised his salary to $2 million.[11] In June 2005, prior to the 2005 season, Franchione donated $1 million to the A&M athletic department. The donation was used to build an indoor practice facility, which is now located adjacent to Kyle Field. Categories: College athletics conferences ...

In the 2005 season, Franchione's Aggies, who were ranked 17th in the preseason AP Poll, regressed to a 5–6 record. The 2005 Aggie defense ranked 107th nationally (out of 119 Division I NCAA teams) and allowed 443.8 yards per game. This prompted Franchione to dismiss defensive coordinator Carl Torbush. Franchione then hired former Western Michigan head coach Gary Darnell to replace Torbush.[13] In an organised sport league, a season is the portion of one year in which regulated games of the sport are in session. ...

In the 2006 season, the Aggies again rebounded under Franchione, posting a 9–3 regular season record that included Franchione's first win over rival Texas. The 9–3 record also marked the most wins for A&M since 1998. However, in that season's Oklahoma game, which ESPN's College GameDay visited, Franchione was criticized by fans for making a field goal call with 3:28 left in the game. The 18th-ranked Sooners ended up defeating the 21st-ranked Aggies 17–16.[11] In the postseason, the Aggies faced 20th-ranked California in the Holiday Bowl and lost 45-10.

2007 season

Newsletter controversy

On September 27, 2007, Franchione discontinued selling a secret email newsletter to athletic boosters who paid US$ 1,200 annually for team information that Franchione has refused to release to the public. The newsletter, called "VIP Connection", had been written by Franchione's personal assistant, Mike McKenzie, and included, but was not limited to, specific injury reports, recruitment information, and Franchione's critical assessments of players. Started in the fall of 2004, the newsletter attracted 27 recipients, 6 of whom received the newsletter for free. 20 of the recipients have been disclosed.[14] The boosters were asked to sign a confidentiality statement to assure the information in the newsletter would not be used for gambling. Though Franchione and McKenzie denied gaining profit from the newsletter, Franchione stated that proceeds went to the company that managed his now-defunct website, coachfran.com. The newsletter was discovered by athletic director Bill Byrne after it was presented to him by a San Antonio Express-News reporter, who had received it through a third-party source. Byrne immediately instructed Franchione to discontinue the newsletter, at which time Franchione complied.[15][16][17][18][19] The last issue of the newsletter, dated September 13, 2007, revealed that Franchione earned a net profit of $37,806.32 from the newsletter. In a press conference the following Tuesday, October 2, Franchione apologized in front of A&M football players and expressed his love for the job and the university, and his desire to "elevate the program to its highest level". A&M players also expressed their support for Franchione as a coach.[20] Shortly after, an investigation had been launched to look into the matter, conducted by Bill Byrne and A&M's NCAA compliance officer, David Batson. The investigation concluded that Franchione violated two NCAA rules and one of the Big 12's "Principals and Standards of Sportsmanship".[21] These findings were in turn reported to the NCAA.[22] The NCAA requires coaches to submit reports that include "athletically related income and benefits from sources outside of the institution", which is also required by Franchione's contract.[23] is the 270th day of the year (271st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On Thursday, October 11, 2007 Texas A&M officials issued a "letter of admonishment" and ordered that the website CoachFran.com be shut down. Additionally, Franchione was instructed to no longer employ "any staff members that could be construed as representing Texas A&M or providing information or reports relative to his position as head coach at Texas A&M". Consequently, the university fired the writer of the newsletter, Mike McKenzie. Byrne has been quoted as saying "The Aggies are embarrassed right now. This has been a very unfortunate incident we do not want to experience again." Byrne also stated that the incident would be included in Franchione's performance evaluation at the end of the season.[24][25] is the 284th day of the year (285th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Resignation

After the Aggies' 17–34 loss at Miami in September 2007, Franchione's coaching abilities were brought into question.[26][27][28][29][30][31][32] A questionable football season marred by extensive defeats combined with the newsletter scandal left the administration little choice. On November 5, 2007, several news sources announced that Franchione and Texas A&M were in the process of settling an agreement that would end Franchione's tenure as head coach at the end of the 2007 football season.[citation needed] Texas A&M officials stated the reports were false rumors and that Franchione's performance was to be reviewed at the end of the season.[33] In a press conference the following day, Franchione refused to answer questions regarding his future at A&M.[34] is the 309th day of the year (310th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

After Franchione led the Aggies to a 38–30 victory over the 13th-ranked Texas Longhorns, he announced his resignation in the post-game press conference. In the press conference, after he discussed the game, he read out loud a farewell letter that he had prepared beforehand. His last words were "Thank you, and gig 'em." Franchione immediately left the press conference as A&M athletic director Bill Byrne started to speak, with friends and family members following him.[35][36] The following day, Byrne named defensive coordinator Gary Darnell as interim head coach. Darnell led the Aggies to a 24-17 defeat at the hands of Penn State in the Alamo Bowl on December 29, 2007.[37] On November 26, 2007, three days after Franchione resigned, former Green Bay Packers head coach, and Houston Texans' offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was announced as the new head football coach.[38] On December 7, 2007, the Texas A&M Board of Regents approved a reduced buyout of $4.4 million for Franchione.[39] Head coach Mack Brown Ninth year, 93–22 Home stadium Darrell K.

Overall performance

ESPN.com: NCF - Franchione rolls Tide by heading to A&M (973 words)
When the NCAA announced its sanctions in the Albert Means case, Franchione pleaded with the nearly 40 juniors and seniors who could transfer without losing a season of eligibility to stay, to depend on him and to depend on each other.
Franchione, an unemotional, analytical man, broke down briefly as he spoke to the Crimson Tide before the Hawaii game last Saturday, according to one member of his staff.
Franchione embraced the Crimson Tide tradition, a history of success that has produced 12 national championships and the most arrogant fans north of Coral Gables and east of Austin.
