Utah State Head Coach Gary Andersen On Ron McBride Retirement Announcement: “If it is time for Coach Mac to retire, then I am happy that he gets to go out on his own terms, number one. He has been a mentor for me as a player, as a young coach, as an old coach and will continue to be for as long as I coach. As long as I coach I will continue to lean on him and he will always be a mentor to me.” “He left his mark and we will continue to leave his mark on football in the state of Utah from little league, to high school and through college for many, many young men and I believe that he will continue to do that.
