Vanderbilt reportedly is parting ways with special teams/running backs coach Jeff Genyk.
As first reported by The Read Optional’s Trey Wallace, Genyk was not retained on Derek Mason’s staff following the Commodores’ 5-7 season. Genyk arrived at Vanderbilt before the 2016 season. Before then, he served as a consultant to Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald on special teams, offense and game management in 2015. He also had recent stints as Eastern Michigan’s coach (2004-08), California’s special teams coordinator (2010-12) and Wisconsin’s special teams coordinator (2013-14).
As pointed out by The Tennessean’s Adam Sparks on Monday, Genyk’s departure comes as the American Football Coaches Association national convention happens in Charlotte this week. Job interviews for assistants often happen there.
