Oregon State and Gary Andersen “mutually part” ways

Shocking news out of Corvallis.

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Oregon State Beavers and head coach Gary Andersen have decided to “mutually part” ways.

Apparently this was the fabled mutual break-up.

Andersen will step down without taking any of the remaining compensation, which is over $12 million.

Andersen had some wise, altruistic words on his way out.

“Coaching is not about the mighty dollar. It is about teaching and putting young men in a position to succeed on and off the field. Success comes when all parties involved are moving in the same direction.”

Of course, sinister speculation started up immediately

Cory Hall—formerly their cornerbacks coach—has been named the interim head coach.

The California Golden Bears are set to play the Beavers on Saturday, November 4.
