So, Derek Mason Is Definitely Going To Colorado, Right?

Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason is the latest coach rumored to be Colorado-bound, after leading the Commodores back to bowl eligibility for the second time in three seasons.

Mason is 23-37 since taking over for Vandy in 2014, which may not seem like much, but, I mean, it is Vandy.

SB Nation reported that, due in large part to Mason’s Pac-12 experience as the Stanford defensive coordinator, he’s getting a serious look from CU.

Mason totally dispelled those rumors with the following response to the Tennessean:

“To comment on speculation at this time would be unfair to my student athletes and Vanderbilt University.”

Oh.

Silly season translation: “Yeah, if Colorado offers me that job I’m all over it.”

That being said, Mason does seem like a bit of an underwhelming replacement for 2016 AP Coach of the Year Mike MacIntyre, but maybe that’s just because Colorado will always be Kordell Stewart and Eric Bienemy wrecking folks in my stupid brain that hasn’t re-calibrated to adjust for the fact that the Buffs have been decidedly not awesome since, like, the late 90s.

For whatever it's worth, I also led CU to back-to-back national titles as its head coach on NCAA Football '14, so I'm a bit biased.

In any case, with names like Ryan Day and Matt Wells also floating around out there, it remains to be seen whether or not the job offer that unspeculative Derek Mason doesn’t not want ever comes.
