Vandy swaps coaches, not philosophy

The reins at Vanderbilt were handed from one Palmetto State native to another, from a low-key Columbia native to a quip-a-minute son of Pageland.

The expectations, however, remain the same: low. Very low.

Vanderbilt begins its 121st season of football next month, seeking its fifth bowl appearance.

Bobby Johnson, the Columbia native, had the longest tenure (eight years) of any Vanderbilt coach since the 1960s. He resigned abruptly two weeks ago, citing a desire to get on with his retirement.
