A well-known mural portraying Vanderbilt's coaches got a new look over the weekend.

Muralist Mike Cooper repainted the portrait of Vanderbilt's new head football coach Derek Mason.

The change comes after hundreds of Vanderbilt students and fans signed a petition asking for the change, saying it wasn't an accurate representation of Coach Mason.

Cooper originally painted Mason's image in February, after the departure of James Franklin.

The new paint job came on Saturday. Cooper told News 2 he is “very pleased with the new portrait.”
