Bobby Johnson Retires, Assistant Robbie Caldwell Takes Over as Interim Head Coach

Ensuring reporters today that he and his wife are healthy, Vanderbilt football head coach Bobby Johnson retired from the sport altogether today for personal reasons. Former assistant head coach Robbie Caldwell will man the helm in his place for the 2010 season, but will have big shoes to fill behind one of Vandy's most successful football coaches in school history. Johnson's watershed moments with the team include a win in Tennessee in 2005, a beating of #6 South Carolina on the road in 2007, and possibly most importantly a win in the 2008 Music City Bowl - the school's first bowl win since 1955.

We'll have more details as they unfold, but Commodore nation is no doubt reeling from the retirement of the coach that brought the team back to respectability. Good luck with retirement, Coach.
