Quality Control • Defense
The 2019 season is Jeremy Garrett’s first on Derek Mason’s Vanderbilt staff. He serves in a quality control role, assisting Commodore defensive coordinator Jason Tarver.
Garrett joins the Commodores after serving last year as head coach at Ensworth High School, a private school power located in Nashville.
Garrett started at Ensworth in May 2011 as a defensive assistant football coach in May 2011. He also served as associate director of admissions at the school.
Garrett also spent nearly two years at Southaven (Miss.) High School near Memphis as an assistant football coach, head boys’ track coach and teacher.
A native of Senatobia, Mississippi, Garrett was a four-year letterwinner at the University of Mississippi from 2004-07. Playing on the defensive line, Garrett accumulated 52 tackles (31 solo) and 6.5 tackles for loss while appearing in 35 games.
In 2007, Garrett was honored by his Ole Miss teammates and coaches by receiving the Chucky Mullins Courage Award. The recognition, given annually to a senior defensive player, honors the late Chucky Mullins, who had his Ole Miss career come to an end in 1989 when making a tackle against Vanderbilt. Garrett was recognized after fighting through leg injuries as a junior in 2006.
Garrett graduated from Ole Miss in 2007 with a degree in business admission. He later earned a Master’s of Business Administration from Harding (Ark.) University in 2010.
Garrett was an academic All-SEC honor roll recipient and named to the Chancellor’s Honor Roll as an Ole Miss undergraduate.
Garrett and his wife, the former Kasharah King, are the parents of two sons, Jayden and Jacob.
