Brandt Snedeker offers Vandy football coach free lessons for life (but only if he stays)

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

For James Franklin, the plot thickens.

Vanderbilt University's highly-rated head football coach is the believed front-runner to land the Penn State job after guiding his team to consecutive 9-4 seasons, including back-to-back bowl wins. Franklin, who's already making $3 million per year, is also in contention for the Washington Redskins' head coaching job.

At first, those probably seemed like pretty attractive ideas -- until Brandt Snedeker got involved, that is. The Vanderbilt alum tweeted Wednesday that he would offer Franklin "free golf lessons for life" if he stayed. 

Free lessons for life from one of the game's best players? That really might be impossible to turn down.
