For the second time in less than six months, the Vanderbilt Commodores are about to find themselves without a head football coach. Robbie Caldwell, Bobby Johnson's hasty midsummer replacement, will step down following tonight's game against Wake Forest (a game the 'Dores actually have a chance to win):
"Having the opportunity to be Vanderbilt’s head football coach has been a dream come true," Caldwell said, "and I greatly appreciated the chance to serve, and I gave it my best. However, after a lot of reflection, I’ve realized it is time for me to step aside and let someone else pick up the hard work and efforts of our staff."
The former VU offensive line coach has been a media darling since his uproarious introduction at SEC Media Days in July, and we wish him continued high-profile employment to the end of his days, if only because that would necessarily entail him being placed before a microphone, again and again.
Parameters and preferences for a replacement candidate have not yet been made public.
