History

Amarty Era (2013)

The Vanderbilt Commodores were one of the schools involved in the inaugural season of CFBHC. Vanderbilt alumnus amarty was tapped to head the program through it's beginning seasons. Amarty led the team to an 0-2 start before disappearing suddenly, leaving the team leaderless until a new coach could be hired.

Vandyjd Era (2013)

After the uncoached Commodores lost yet another two games, the Vanderbilt athletic department hired vandyjd to coach the program. Vandyjd led the program to an 0-3 record, before leaving the Commodores coachless as well. The Commodores' coaching position remained vacant for the remainder of the season, as Vanderbilt went 0-5 during that time frame. The 2013 season of Vanderbilt football is known as "The Lost Season" as Vanderbilt became the first team to go winless in CFBHC.

serwendel Era (2014-Present)

After the horrendous first season, Vanderbilt hired serwendel to coach the team. Inheriting a roster full of holes, serwendel led the 2014 Commodores to a 3-9 record. Over time serwendel has led the Commodores to a 40-35 record. With losses in the Weis Market Bowl (against Clemson) and the Liberty Bowl (against Texas Tech), serwendel led Vanderbilt to their first bowl win in the 2019 Orange Bowl against Pittsburgh.
