Well there you have it folks, in page 2 of the article Coach Andersen says he
will stay at Utah State forever. Sorry Utah County Media Conglomerates, looks
like Utah State will have a great football team for years and years to come and
you will be forced to cover them whether you like it or not. Go
That's what he said but mark my words he won't. Sorry but its true if
a coach is successful they get picked up by a bigger school and won't turn
the offer down.
@Stang,I agree that coaches generally do exactly what you said, but there
are examples of those who don't, like Lavell Edwards at the Y. Andersen
already turned down offers. I choose to trust what he has said until he gives
me reason not to believe him. He hasn't yet.
I played for Coach Anderson in Cedar City and there was a lot more to his
leaving than a bigger program and more money. While some people in Cedar have
found fault with him for leaving most of us who played for him didn't. We
were disappointed, but just like Davis said in the article we wanted what was
best for coach because that's how he treated us. Coach Andersen is a class
act and all those who try to paint him otherwise don't know him at all.
Good for him! The best college football coach in the state of Utah. I love to
see someone be successful and happy where they are instead of chasing more
money. I hope he stays for years and builds a great program and I'm not
even a Utah State fan!
It just gets better and better. Coach Andersen has drastically changed the
football culture at USU for the better. I am glad that USU is also having a
positive influnce on Andersen and his family.
Sounds like a good guy. We were in Utah a couple of years in the summer and
Logan was a beautiful town. Would not surprise me if GA takes over the Utah
program one day. GA is the best coach in the state of Utah.
