Gary Andersen mic'd up

When Gary Andersen took over the Utah State program back in late 2008, he took over a program that had a combined 4 wins in the three years prior to his arrival, and just a handful of seasons where they finished over .500. In a very short window, Andersen has built a winner.

In his first two seasons on campus, Andersen won 8 games, which was something that the Aggies hadn't done in a two year span in over a decade. He followed that up with a 7 win season in 2011 (7-6), and this season he has led Utah State to an impressive 10-2 record to go along with a WAC title, and their success has lead to his name being mentioned with many of the open jobs across the country.

Here's a good clip of Andersen mic'd up during practice, which provides a great look into his coaching style. It's easy to see why him and his staff have been able to recruit Utah very well, as well as convince kids from Florida to come out to Utah and play for him. What you see is what you get with coach Andersen.
