Vanderbilt football coach Robbie Caldwell told ESPN's Joe Schad that he has been working under a multiyear contract.

In August, the interim tag was removed from Caldwell's title. Caldwell replaced Bobby Johnson, who unexpectedly retired before the start of this season.

Caldwell said Vanderbilt (2-6, 1-4 SEC) does not reveal contractual details but that he is planning to coach Vanderbilt next season.

The 56-year-old Caldwell had coached the Vanderbilt offensive line since 2002 and was assistant head coach in recent years under Johnson.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
