“I want to make it very clear that Derek Mason will be our head coach moving forward,” Turner shared in his announcement.“Coach Mason has my full support and I am committed to working with him to ensure our football program has the necessary resources and support to succeed. We are in the midst of developing a new and robust athletic strategic plan with the vision to put the football program and all of our varsity sports in a position to win on and off the field of play.”

The Commodores are 2-8 this season. They are in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

Both of their wins have come at home at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. One of the wins came over the Northern Illinois Huskies in a 24-18 win on Sept. 28.

Vanderbilt also defeated the Missouri Tigers in a 21-14 win on Oct. 19.

The team has two games left to close out the season. The team plays the East Tennessee State Buccaneers this Saturday.

Their season finale will be against the Tennessee Volunteers on Nov. 30th.

“Coach Mason is committed to leading Vanderbilt’s football program the right way and we will move forward in that spirit together,” the release also said.

Mason has been at the school since the 2014 season. He has guided the team to a 26-46 record.

However, he is just 10-37 in the Southeastern Conference East.
