New Vandy coach ready for start of spring practice
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Vanderbilt has finished the past two seasons ranked in the Top 25. Now the Commodores are preparing for spring practice with a new coach in Derek Mason and trying to build off their recent success.
"I know that we have a football team that won and knows what it is to win," Mason said Monday. "This unit is a good football unit, they've won games."
Vanderbilt is coming off a second straight 9-4 season and finished No. 24 in The Associated Press' final ranking, making James Franklin an attractive coaching candidate. He left in January to take over at Penn State.
