Utah State and coach Gary Andersen are parting ways after a 0-3 start to the season for the Aggies. Andersen was in Year 2 of his second stint at Utah State.
"After a thorough analysis on the current state of our football team, we believe a change at head coach is in the best interest of our program moving forward," athletic director John Hartwell said Saturday in a statement. "The continued success and development of Aggie football is a priority and we want to make sure we are regular contenders for the Mountain West Championship."
Co-defensive coordinator Frank Maile will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
