Hall Humbled to Helm Beavers

Following yesterday’s announcement of the resignation of  Head OSU Football coach, Gary Anderson, Oregon State University’s vice president Scott Barnes held a press conference where he introduced interim coach Cory Hall to the media.  Hall said he was humbled by the opportunity to coach the remainder of the season in an interim position.

201: “I can assure Beaver Nation that I will do everything in my power to move these young men forward in a positive manner.  My first order of business will be to get back on the field and preparing for our game against Colorado this Saturday.”

Hall says he promises the fans and the players his best.  He says that’s what the players deserve, and that is why he does what he does.  Barnes told reporters that the decision that was mutually agreed upon was difficult since he and Anderson had not only worked together, but have been friends for many year.
