Game Womens Jonathan Allen Jersey Former Oregon State and Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen has been hired at Utah to be a defensive assistant and associate head coach, the school announced Tuesday.
Andersen, who had two other stints at Utah (1997-2002 and 2004-2008), parted ways with Oregon State in October after the Beavers started 1-5.
We’re looking forward to Gary rejoining our staff, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said in a statement. Gary brings a wealth of high-level coaching experience to the program, including serving as the head coach at two Power Five schools. During his previous time on our staff, he developed some of the best defensive linemen in Utah history.
After two years as the coach at Wisconsin, where he went 19-7, Andersen made the surprising jump to OSU before the 2015 season to replace Mike Riley. He inherited a team devoid of talent but seemingly had the program heading in the right direction coming into the season. The Beavers improved from 2-10 in his first season to 4-8 in Year 2.
Andersen was the head coach at Utah State from 2009 to 2012, where he compiled a 26-24 record, including an 11-2 season in his final year that propelled him to the Wisconsin job.
A 6-foot-5, 340-pound space-eating interior lineman, Vea is projected by ESPN’s Todd McShay to be a first-round draft pick. He was the centerpiece of a Washington defense that allowed the fewest rushing yards in the FBS during the regular season.
As I begin the next chapter of my football career, I will never forget where it all began, he wrote in the post Monday. The University of Washington is a special place. … I cherish every game I was able to play in purple and gold.
