AD Wants More Titles At Vandy, Football Included

CREATED Jul 17, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Baseball coach Tim Corbin and his Commodores have set a new bar at Vanderbilt by winning the school's second national title last month at the College World Series.

Now athletic director David Williams wants to know who's next. And he includes the football team, even with a first-year head coach, as having a chance to build on its already unprecedented success in the program's history.

Williams said winning the baseball championship sent a message to Vanderbilt's other coaches that titles are possible. He told The Associated Press that the Commodores are pleased and proud but ready to go after the next one.

With the baseball title, Vanderbilt finished 45th in the Directors' Cup with 11 of 16 teams reaching the postseason.
