NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Vanderbilt football coach Derek Mason has added four assistants to his staff.

They are defensive coordinator Jason Tarver, special teams coordinator Shawn Mennenga, wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead and cornerbacks coach Terrence Brown.

The appointment of Tarver marks a change in approach for Mason, who had served as his own defensive coordinator since 2015.

Tarver and Mason were both Stanford assistants in 2011. Tarver also has been a defensive assistant for the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders.

Mennenga has been a special teams assistant coach with the Cleveland Browns the last seven seasons. Moorehead, who previously worked with Mason at Stanford, spent the last three seasons as Texas A&M’s receivers coach.

Brown was a defensive graduate assistant for Washington the last three seasons.

Vanderbilt went 5-7 last season.
