Pry is considered the leading candidate for the job according to the source. Pry has been a defensive assistant at Vanderbilt since 2011.

Pry has been the linebackers coach for the Commodores since he was brought onto the staff by head coach James Franklin. He also holds the titles of assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator for the Commodores.

Pry was the defensive coordinator at Georgia Southern under Monken in 2010.

Jasper is in his 14th season at the Naval Academy. He has been the quarterbacks coach at Navy for 12 years and the offensive coordinator for the past six seasons.There have been no further reports of other candidates being involved in the interview process.

Jasper was the quarterbacks coach and fullbacks coach at Georgia Southern under Paul Johnson from 1999-2001

Georgia Southern athletics director Tom Kleinlein could not be reached by phone for comment as of Saturday evening.
