The move comes after Andersen spent this past year as an assistant at rival Utah.Andersen previously served in the same role for the Utes from 2009 to 2012, going 26-24 in four seasons.The 2012 season saw the Aggies reach the highest of highs, as they won a school-record 11 games, a Mountain West Conference title, and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl in a 41-15 win over Toledo.Utah State: New boss, same as the old boss.— Ralph D.

But despite a 19-7 record in two season, Andersen ultimately chose to buy out his contract to move to Oregon State.The move to Oregon State didn’t pan out though as Andersen’s Beavers went 7-23 in two-plus years before the two sides parted ways in 2017.last_img
