Artist adds new Vandy football coach Mason to West End mural

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

You might say Vanderbilt's new head football coach, Derek Mason, is now officially part of Nashville.

Artist Mike Cooper added Mason's likeness to the iconic mural at the corner of 28th Avenue and West End on Tuesday.

The painting features Vandy's football, baseball and men's and women's basketball coaches.

Mason was introduced as the Commodores' coach on Jan. 18, but the mural, which is seen by thousands of drivers each day, still displayed the face of former Vanderbilt coach James Franklin until now.
