News coverage of the coach’s day is by beat man Chris Adamski, and it’s highlighted by some surprising Pittsburgh ties.
Franklin’s intelligence, enthusiasm lauded, by Bob Cohn.

I’ll appear on WPXI-TV’s Subway Final Word at 11:35 p.m., along with Rob Rossi, Bill Phillips and host Alby Oxenreiter.
There also will be a Monday column about baseball, and I’ll be holding my nose through the whole thing. This topic burns me up in a bad way.
