Sports

Utah State has informed the football team that head coach Blake Anderson is on administrative leave and is unlikely to return, sources told ESPN’s Pete Thamel on Tuesday.

Defensive coordinator Nate Dreiling has been named interim coach, sources told ESPN.

Anderson, 55, has gone 23-17 in his three seasons at Utah State, winning the Mountain West Conference in 2021. The Aggies, however, have gone 6-7 in back-to-back seasons since, losing in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl to cap last season.

He previously served as coach at Arkansas State, going 51-37 from 2014 to 2020.

Utah State opens the 2024 season against Robert Morris on Aug. 31 before visiting USC and hosting Utah in the following two weeks.
