Derek Mason has hired Vavae Tata’s replacement at Vanderbilt.

Utah State defensive line coach Frank Maile will be the Commodores’ new defensive line coach, according to FootballScoop.

Maile coached for the Aggies for six years, starting as a graduate assistant then working his way up to defensive line coach. He’ll be a nice asset and great addition for the Commodores’ staff and program.

Maile replaced former coach Vavae Tata, who was charged with a DUI earlier in February. The police report said Tata hit two parked cars and fled the scene to avoid police but was found a few blocks away.
