Utah State names Anderson new coach

Blake Anderson was named the new coach at Utah State on Saturday night after spending the past seven seasons at Arkansas State.

The Aggies have scheduled a press conference for Monday morning.

“On behalf of Aggie nation, I am thrilled to announce Blake Anderson as our new head football coach,” Utah State athletic director John Hartwell said in a statement. “I have watched his Arkansas State teams over the past seven years, first when I was at Troy and then here at USU, and I am excited for our fans to witness first-hand his high-octane offense and championship brand of football.”

Anderson went 51-37 at Arkansas State, leading the Red Wolves to winning seasons in every season except this one (4-7). Anderson took the Red Wolves to six bowl games. Also Saturday night, Arkansas named Butch Jones to replace Anderson in Jonesboro, Ark.

Anderson replaces Gary Andersen, who was fired by Utah State in November after an 0-3 start.
