247Sports reported Thursday night Vanderbilt had concluded interviews for its head coaching position and a decision could come as early as Friday with Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris and Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason. But The Tennessean of Nashville reported later in the evening the interviews are not over.
The paper cited Vanderbilt athletics director David Williams as saying there are candidates still on the board:
Asked when he thought the interview process would be done, Williams said: “I hope soon, but until we find a coach we still have some things we have to do and people to talk to.”
Williams and members of the search committee were expected to conduct more interviews Thursday. A CBSSports.com report had Mason and Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton as interviewing Thursday.
