Interesting analysis on one of their sites. While Morris is still in the running, when they compared the two guys it made me realize why Mason is the frontrunner. Morris (in their opinion) brought little to the table other than initial fan excitement and potential to attract good recruits on that side of the ball. His personality was basically described as ...meh, and I'd guess that's a big part of why he never gets past the first interview.

This is the first time Morris was named at some point in the process as a front runner for a job by any insiders. I think this development, and the interview of Schottenheimer confirms what many have suspected: Morris is a bad interview.

I thought Vandy had all but decided on Derek Mason. Is he out of the picture now? Because that's who my money was on.

I don't think anyone has been excluded to this point, looks like they are making the rounds before they make a formal offer. Just my 2 cents.

Sounds like they are getting serious now:

Vanderbilt: According to 247 Sports, St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer is interviewing today for the Vanderbilt head coaching job.

Vanderbilt: According to CBS' Bruce Feldman, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason are expected to interview for the Vanderbilt head coaching job on Thursday.

Are they hell-bent on getting a minority coach? Honest question.

I've thought the same thing. However, aren't they required to interview so many minority coaches for these jobs?

Don't want anyone to take that the wrong way, but neither of those guys should really warrant consideration IMO. Vandy needs an offensive minded coach, which would rule out Mason. And Hamilton has done a medicore job at best at Indy. Although Colts fans would love to see him go.

As much as I hate to say it, Morris should be the hire if they could get him.

I don't follow your logic. Both Hamilton and Mason have coached and recruited at Stanford, which is similar to Vandy in stringent academic requirements. Hamilton coached some good offenses at Stanford and his offense at the Colts has not exactly been terrible. Simply having the experience coaching at the professional level is a plus. Then you've got Mason, who has coached some of the best defenses in the nation at Stanford.

How can you say that Morris deserves to be the hire, and those other two shouldn't even be considered? I'm totally lost as to what puts Morris on another level from those two guys.

Vikings are hiring Mike Zimmer as their HC, per league source.

Mississippi State: With the departure of Les Koenning, it will be interesting to see how Dan Mullen proceeds. Koenning was hired by Strong at Texas.

Eagles QB coach Bill Lazor has accepted the job of Dolphins OC,

Vandy has won in the SEC by putting up points....the same was Cutcliff has won at Duke. So hiring a defensive minded coach like Mason would be a step back IMO. They need an offensive minded guy, which is why I said Morris.

Hamilton makes more sense, but let's be honest, he's not going to have an Andrew Luck at Vandy like he did at Stanford and now at Indy.

Missouri only returns 8 starters or something like that total.

I know Mauck is good, but I think they take a step back.

It's a Dawg/Cock battle next year unless the Gators can get their O in gear (which I doubt).

Will come down to if Mason or Thompson play better.

Read one of their boards, and one of the guys posted "Great, Schottenheimer can tell stories about how he coached Kellen Clemens and Mark Sanchez."
Another poster was upset because he thought it was Marty Schottenheimer that was being interviewed. haha

I just read that stuff. too. I was lol. They are approaching meltdown stage if they don't hire Morris or Mason. Seems like they all agree on one of those two. I think they are both still in play.

Seems like Morris won't get the job. They keep his name in there to pretend that they're interested because that's what the fans want, but everyone else is getting reports of interviews except Morris. Seems like he's the back up plan at best.
