In the Vanderbilt blog on the Tennessean‘s website, beat-reporter Jeff Lockridge clear up the “multi-year” contract extension reportedly being worked out between Vanderbilt and Coach Robbie Caldwell:
“Absolutely nothing has chan ged with Caldwell’s con tract since the pre sea son, Van der bilt offi cials con firmed after Florida’s 55-14 win.
When the inte rim tag was remo ved from Caldwell’s title before the sea son began, his con tract was rewor ked as a ‘multi-year deal.’ It is widely known to be a two-year deal, although vice chan ce llor David Williams and Cald well choose to remain non-specific on the record to pre serve Vanderbilt’s pri vacy poli cies regar ding contracts.”
Lockridge offers this to bewildered Commodore fans: “All Vanderbilt fans need to know is that nothing has changed. Nothing is in place that would prevent Vanderbilt from going another direction after this season, or making a commitment to keeping Caldwell and his staff on board.” If Vanderbilt doesn’t look more competitive in their final 3 games than they have in 3 of their last 4, another direction might be the proper course to chart.
