He marches to a different beat.”— CBS Sports Tony Franklin has been listed as one of the top offensive football coaches in college football. He’s been featured in Forbes, NPR, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and numerous other national media outlets for his offensive success, coaching and mentoring the #1 pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Jared Goff, developing a unique business model that changed how football is played, and a willingness to express controversial outspoken views while publicly taking to task the power players of college football. Franklin has also authored and published two successful books and appeared on numerous radio, television, and podcast mediums over his 40 year career. Franklin retired on January 1, 2021, to dedicate his life to building a successful business in consulting, writing, publishing, and podcasting. The Coach Tony Franklin Podcast is an authentic hardcore, raw, and honest look into the real-life experiences and lessons of an American man whose journeys have been anything but boring. Whether it’s a detailed description of his unusual hiring and firing at Auburn by current US Senator Tommy Tuberville, or a heartfelt raw journey into being bankrupt, sleeping in his car, and gambling to pay bills, Franklin delivers brutally honest personal accounts of living a human and imperfect life, as well as a unique insider’s perspective of big-time college football.

Thanks!

I’ve listened since day 1 but having you report this week on real life and our families devastation has been moving! Thanks Tony.

Excellent Insight

Coach’s style/personality might not be for everyone, but if you’re a college football fan looking for some straight talk from a true insider then I highly recommend you give it a listen.

A weekly must!

I went to Troy with Coach Franklin’s daughters and saw the podcast on one of their Facebook posts. I’ve been addicted since. This podcast is a weekly must-listen for me. As games wrap on Sat nights, I find myself exclaiming to my husband the games, players and plays I can’t wait to hear Tony’s opinions on! From impactful stories from the past to unpopular takes on CFB, it’s never a dull listen!
