Gary Anderson is out as head coach of the Oregon State Beavers (1-5, 0-3 Pac-12), effective Monday per an announcement by the university. A decision that may have been brewing for quite some time arrived after the Beavers were dropped 38-10 by No. 14 USC, the fourteenth road loss in-a-row during Andersen’s tenure.

Assistant Cory Hall was named the interim coach replacing Andersen, who led OSU to a 7-23 overall record since taking over at the start of the 2015 season. Hall has been with the Beavers program since 2016 as a defensive back coach with stints at Weber State, Wisconsin, Clovis North HS (Fresno, CA) and Washington State going back to 2006.
The Colorado Buffaloes hit the road to face Oregon State this weekend (2 p.m. MT/ TV: Pac-12 Network). CU is looking to make it three straight wins over the Beavers after dominating last year’s game at Folsom Field, 47-6. The 41-point win is the largest margin of victory for the Buffs over a conference opponent in the past decade.
