NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Warren Belin has rejoined Vanderbilt’s coaching staff as an outside linebackers coach.

Belin is filling a void that was created when Osia Lewis changed responsibilities with the program to concentrate on battling liver cancer. Lewis, who had been Vanderbilt’s outside linebackers coach, now has an off-field role as special consultant to head coach Derek Mason and senior defensive assistant.

Belin previously worked at Vanderbilt as a linebackers coach on Bobby Johnson’s staff from 2002-09.

Mason said Monday in a school release that Belin “understands this place and he understands what I want.”

Belin had coached with Wake Forest, Georgia and the NFL’s Carolina Panthers since ending his first Vanderbilt stint.

Vanderbilt held its first spring practice session Monday. The Commodores went 6-7 and reached the Independence Bowl this past season.
