CORVALLIS, Ore.-Per numerous reports, Oregon State head football coach Gary Andersen resigned Monday after going 7-23 at the helm.

Andersen, who got his start in coaching at I-AA Southeastern Louisiana in 1988, is foregoing the remaining $11.6 million on his contract that had run through 2021, per sports columnist Kurt Kragthorpe of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Andersen had been described as “kind of depressed” by his former college football coach and boss, Ron McBride, after the Beavers’ 42-7 loss to Washington on September 30.

Andersen, who was also the head coach at Utah State (2009-2012) and Wisconsin (2013-2014) as well as Oregon State, has a career record of 56-61 (.479) including a 1-2 mark in bowl games.

The Beavers’ interim coach is Cory Hall, who coached Weber State’s secondary in 2015, per Kragthorope, and joined Andersen’s staff in Corvallis last season.
