Vanderbilt will retain Derek Mason

Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason will return for a seventh season in 2020, athletic director Malcolm Turner announced Tuesday.

The Commodores are just 2-8 this fall, leading to speculation about a possible coaching change. But Turner said Mason has his "full support" as the school tries to enhance facilities and other support areas for the program.

Arkansas fires Chad Morris

Arkansas fired Chad Morris after he was just 4-18 overall since replacing Bret Bielema in December 2017 and winless in 14 SEC games. Tight ends coach/special-teams coordinator Barry Lunney Jr. will finish out the season as the Razorbacks' interim coach.

Florida State fires Willie Taggart

Florida State fired head coach Willie Taggart on Sunday after just 21 games at the helm (Taggart went 9-12), and will now be looking for a new coach for the second time in the last two years. What's next for the Seminoles?

Rutgers fires Chris Ash

Rutgers was the first coaching domino to fall this season, when it fired head coach Chris Ash on Sept. 29 following a 1-3 start. Ash went 8-32 in three-plus seasons at the school. Nunzio Campanile, who had been the tight ends coach before the change, is the interim coach and is now also serving as offensive coordinator.
