Vanderbilt losing assistant coach Aaron Moorehead to the NFL
Derek Mason’s Vanderbilt coaching staff has already undergone a massive overhaul this offseason and that theme will continue following National Signing Day as the Commodores have lost another assistant coach this offseason.
Receivers coach Aaron Moorehead is leaving Vanderbilt for the Philadelphia Eagles, as first reported by Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice. Before joining the college football coaching ranks, Moorhead played in the NFL for the Colts from 2003 until 2007. Vanderbilt hired him after a three-year run at Texas A&M where Moorehead worked under Kevin Sumlin.
According to Kempski, the Eagles have changed receivers coaches annually for the previous six years.
This offseason, Mason hired offensive coordinator Todd Fitch from Louisiana Tech as well as offensive line coach Pete Rossomando and now will have to find a new receivers coach to join his Nashville-based program. Mason has also changed the Commodores defensive staff, hiring college veteran Ted Roof from Appalachian State and as well as defensive backs coach Marc Mattioli.
