The Vanderbilt Commodores are parting ways with head coach Bryce Drew. This news was first relayed on Twitter by Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.
Vanderbilt finished the season with a 9-23 overall record. Furthermore, the Commodores went 0-18 in the SEC. Despite all of that, it is somewhat strange for Vandy to be pulling the trigger on Drew this quickly, as his team was not only one of the youngest in the country this season, but had to deal with injuries.
It’s also worth mentioning that it wasn’t as if Bryce Drew had multiple recruiting cycles to go through to help Vanderbilt return to consistent success. That being said, it doesn’t really matter what outsiders think of the move, as the parting of ways has already happened.
What will be interesting, however, is to see what the Vanderbilt Commodores do next. Prior to hiring Drew, they lost Kevin Stallings to the Pittsburgh Panthers, who wound up getting fired. He’s probably available.
