Building on his mission to “Dominate The State,” Penn State football coach James Franklin and several head coaches will embark on the Penn State Coaches Caravan tour this spring, with stops in 17 locales. Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will be his final stop on the tour.
At the event, Penn Staters will be treated to a message from the Nittany Lions head coach and at least one other Penn State head coach and have the opportunity to ask questions about the Nittany Lions’ nationally recognized 31-sport athletic department. During the Coaches Caravan event, Franklin will address fans and talk about his core values for the program, vision for Penn State football and preparations for the 2014 season, as well as how all Penn State alumni and fans can help build on Penn State football’s tradition of excellence. The event will feature a meet and greet with Franklin and the other Nittany Lion head coaches during an evening reception prior to the address.
“Our staff is so appreciative of the tremendous welcome from Nittany Nation,” Franklin said. “The pride and passion for Penn State, the football program and all our teams are very obvious. We are looking forward to getting around Pennsylvania and the region to visit with all of our proud Penn Staters. The opportunity to share our vision for this program and bring this family back together excites our entire staff.”
The Penn State Coaches Caravan, jointly sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club, kicks off May 1 with an evening event in State College. The Coaches Caravan customized coach will roll out of Happy Valley on May 6 for events in York and Hershey, followed by stops in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. (May 7) and Uniontown and Pittsburgh (May 8) during the first full week. The Coaches Caravan will visit Nittany Nation strongholds across Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic through May 22.
