PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Tennessee prosecutor says Penn State football coach James Franklin did nothing ''inappropriate'' when he contacted the woman who claims four of Franklin's Vanderbilt University players raped her last year.

Nashville Deputy District Attorney Tom Thurman tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1lDBY8Z) on Thursday that ''there is no indication that coach Franklin did anything inappropriate.''

Thurman says any contact Franklin had with the woman wasn't significant to the case.

Franklin denied wrongdoing earlier this week after attorneys for one of the four former Vanderbilt players charged accused prosecutors of mishandling evidence in the case.

Thurman says the defense filings are merely an attempt to ''intimidate the victim and malign veteran prosecutors.''
