Vanderbilt parting ways with football coach Derek Mason

Vanderbilt is parting ways with head football coach Derek Mason.

Offensive coordinator Todd Fitch will serve as interim head coach until a replacement for Mason is named, Lee said.

Mason became Vanderbilt's 28th head coach in 2014, coming to Nashville after serving as Stanford's associate head coach and defense coordinator. Just the second coach in Vanderbilt history to lead two Commodore teams to postseason bowls, Mason was also the first Vanderbilt coach since the 1920's to defeat Tennessee in three consecutive meetings. Mason, the sixth-winningest coach in program history, compiled a 27-55 overall record at Vanderbilt.

The search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
