From what I have heard it appears the firm Vandy hired to do the coaching search has said they would pick Mason over Morris. However, boosters, fans, etc. seem to be leaning more towards the Morris hire probably since it would be a little more flashy of a hire. They should be announcing their decision tomorrow. My gut says its Morris. I feel like he realizes he needs a stepping stone HC job before he could possibly land the big HC job he desires. Some claimed Vandy sports people on twitter are saying Morris is the man as well.

Morris has a lot of name recognition right now though.
I think Mason is the perfect fit.

Default Re: Vanderbilt Coaching Search

One big advantage that Morris could have over Mason is that he has spent some time in the East Coast while at Clemson, recruiting southern states that are big SEC regions. He has established some good connections with high school coaches that he could maintain, while Mason would be starting over. Morris is also an offensive-minded coach like Franklin was, while Mason is a DC at Stanford: defense reigns in the SEC, but maybe the personnel on the Vandy roster is more suited for Morris to maintain the success Vandy has had in recent years better than what Mason would do...

"Here was James Franklin, a guy that despite his wins was still relatively un-established on a major scale, but yet David Williams had him at $3-plus million and was willing to give him more to keep him," CBSSports.com College Football Insider Jeremy Fowler said. "Other coaches are going to see that level of commitment and be very attracted to the job.

If I was making 1.3 as a OC I better be at 3 or over as a HC. And he was making like 80k 5-6 years ago.... Wow.

Yeah I would take it too. Even if it doesn't work out, you have guranteed terms and are set for life.

Vandy is losing recruits more and more with each day that passes w/o a coach. I don't undestand why they're taking so long. AD is screwing the pooch.

Their AD says it's better to make the correct hire, then rush a decision and choose poorly.

And he's right. If I were an AD, I would rather sacrifice a recruiting class and make the correct hire, than rush a wrong hire to sacrifice a class.

One class can be overcome the next year with the correct hire. But a wrong one will set you back years under their contract.

Don't think he'll get the job, but you may be better off if he does as I would guess Clemson would try and get Lincoln Riley as his replacement. Now if Clemson tried to replace him with Jeff Scott, that would be another matter.

Seriously doubt they'll be better off. They are going to have to go fishing again and I doubt they land a guy as good as Morris. At that point, Dabo's deficiencies will start to manifest.

I don't believe you, but if you are serious you are the first Clempson fan I have heard say that. Most want Dabo to leave so Morris can be the head coach.
