Andersen introduced as Oregon State's head coach

Posted: Updated:
  CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Gary Andersen said his decision to leave Wisconsin after just two seasons for the job at Oregon State came down to fit.

   He was introduced as the Beavers' head coach on Friday, telling the crowd that there's no doubt in his mind that he's where he's supposed to be.

   Andersen replaces Mike Riley, who surprisingly left Oregon State last week after 14 seasons in Corvallis. It was equally surprising when Andersen announced he was leaving Wisconsin.

   The Badgers have gone 10-3 this season and are headed to the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 against Auburn. Wisconsin athletic director and longtime former coach Barry Alvarez says he will coach the Badgers in their bowl game.
