Udeze also had a prolific college football career. He was once an All-America defensive end for the USC Trojans in 2003.

The Vanderbilt Commodores also hired Todd Fitch as the offensive coordinator for the upcoming season. He will be replacing Gerry Gdowski, who got fired along with defensive coordinator Jason Tarver.
