Vanderbilt replaces Tata with Utah State assistant
Vanderbilt has snagged Utah State’s defensive line coach Frank Maile, the Salt Lake Tribune has reported.
The Tribune noted: “In the last two years alone, five of his linemen earned all conference honors: Al Lapuaho, Connor Williams, Jordan Nielsen, A.J. Patiali’i and B.J. Larsen.”
The paper noted that Maile was well-known for his in-state recruiting, and especially his recruiting of Polynesian recruits. That could be some asset for new coach Derek Mason’s team if Maile continues that vein of form.
Maile replaces Vavae Tata, who arrested for DUI earlier this month.
