Vanderbilt’s associate head coach is headed east, according to a tweet from Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans.
Kenwick Thompson, who also coached Commodores linebackers, served under coach Derek Mason at Vandy for the past two seasons. Before coming to Nashville, he put in seven combined years as a defensive assistant at San Jose State and California.
Thompson now joins coach Scottie Montgomery’s staff at East Carolina. The Pirates finished 5-7 in the American Athletic Conference this season.
