Franklin said. "I believe we have a schedule that will challenge us and prepare
us for this coming fall. We have been busy with individual practices and will
begin our team practices at the end of the month. It will be nice to put the
pieces of the puzzle together on the court."
Franklin, who took
over at Green Bay on Jan. 8 after spending the last four seasons as an
assistant at Marquette, recently announced the hiring
