CollegeFootballTalk Says Vanderbilt Should Take A Look At Mark Hudspeth
Collegefootballtalk.com has given an endorsement, of sorts, to Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun head football coach Mark Hudspeth, in relation to the job opening with the Vanderbilt Commodores.
In a Saturday post, talking about how former Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin made the position more appealing, Kevin McGuire says that if Vandy hires a sitting head coach “Hudspeth should be at the top of the list.”
McGuire goes on to say that there are a number of current assistant coaches who would be attractive options.
Franklin, who guided Vanderbilt to a 24-15 record over three years, left the Commodores to accept the head coaching position at Penn St.
With Hudspeth at the helm, Louisiana has had three-consecutive 9-4 seasons, including a Sun Belt Conference title in 2013, as well as three-straight New Orleans Bowl victories.
Last week, it was reported that UL and Hudspeth were working on a contract extension, his first since the completion of the 2011 season, when he coached the Cajuns to their first bowl appearance in 41 years.
