Oregon State Football Coach Gary Anderson Parts Ways With Program

The Oregon State football program has a head coaching vacancy.

On Monday afternoon, following a 1-5 start to the season for the Beavers, it was announced that head coach Gary Andersen and the program have mutually agreed to part ways.

Oregon State sent out a press release confirming the news.

“I thank Gary for his many contributions to our student-athletes, OSU Athletics and Oregon State University,” athletic director Scott Barnes said in a statement.

“OSU football has advanced significantly in many ways during Gary’s tenure here, including in our facilities and student-athlete academic performance. This program is poised for success on and off the field.”

Cornerbacks coach Cory Hall will serve as interim head coach until the vacancy is permanently filled.

“After many discussions with Scott, waiving my contract is the correct decision and enables the young men and the program to move forward and concentrate on the rest of this season,” Andersen said. “Coaching is not about the mighty dollar. It is about teaching and putting young men in a position to succeed on and off the field. Success comes when all parties involved are moving in the same direction.”

Oregon State was just 7-23 under Anderson in just over two seasons. The Beavers’ lone win this season came over FCS Portland State, so a change clearly needed to be made.

Hall’s first game leading the Beavers will come this weekend at home against Colorado.
