NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Bryce Drew will not return as the head men’s basketball coach at Vanderbilt for the 2019-20 season, as announced Friday by Vice Chancellor for Athletics and University Affairs and Athletics Director Malcolm Turner.
“Vanderbilt is committed to competing at the highest levels on and off the court. After careful consideration, we’ve decided to make a change to the leadership of our men’s basketball program,” said Turner. “Bryce has represented Vanderbilt in exceptional fashion in his time here. I appreciate all of the contributions Bryce has made over the past three seasons to Vanderbilt, and we wish him all the best.”
The university’s search for Drew’s replacement will begin immediately, led by Turner and with support from Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos.
