CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Head football coach Gary Andersen and OSU have officially agreed to part ways.

Oregon State University Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Barnes made the announced Monday morning.

"I thank Gary for his many contributions to our student-athletes, OSU Athletics and Oregon State University," Barnes said.

He said OSU football has "advanced significantly during Gary's tenure."

Oregon State and Andersen released each other from all future contract obligations through the 2021 football season.

Barnes said he respects Andersen on a personal and professional level.

Andersen said this allows the team to move forward and concentrate on the season.

"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," said Andersen.

The university is beginning their national search for a new head coach. Assistant coach Cory Hall will lead the football program on an interim basis until a new head coach is found.
