Professional golfer Brandt Snedeker has had a lot to say about the head coaching position at Vanderbilt lately.
When the news that James Franklin was a top candidate for the Penn State job, Snedeker, a Vanderbilt alum and Nashville native, offered Franklin free golf lessons for life if he stayed at Vanderbilt.

That generous offer didn’t yield any results when, a few days later, Franklin was introduced at Penn State. Now that Vandy has hired former Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason as head coach, Snedeker’s free lessons for life offer still stands for the new guy.
The offer is still good for coach Mason.. Free lessons for life!! I'm all in!! #AnchorDown

Vanderbilt football showed appreciation of Snedeker’s passion for the program and wished him good luck in this weekend’s Humana Challenge in La Quinta, California.
Even with his alma mater’s well wishes, Snedeker did not shoot a 60. He shot a 69 Saturday and a 70 Sunday to finish the tournament at -13, good for 58th place. Maybe he should concentrate on golf and give Twitter a break for a while.
