Mason will replace Rick Stockstill, who was fired after going 4-8 on the year. Stockstill was the Blue Raiders head coach for eighteen seasons and finished with a 113-111 record and 10 bowl appearances.

Middle Tennessee has scheduled a press conference for tomorrow morning (Dec. 6th) at 9 CT to make the announcement.
