Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason will return for the 2020 season despite another disappointing campaign for the Commodores, athletic director Malcolm Turner announced Tuesday.

Mason - who received a contract extension in February - has led Vanderbilt to a 2-8 record this season, including a 1-6 mark in the SEC.

Through six seasons, the 50-year-old owns a 26-46 record.

Mason led the Commodores to bowl appearances last season and in 2016. Vanderbilt, which has only made a bowl game nine times in its 116-year history, lost both contests.

The Commodores play East Tennessee State at home Saturday before ending their season on the road against Tennessee.
