LOGAN, Utah (ABC4) – Officials with Utah State University have given their condolences to current Aggies’ head football coach Blake Anderson, formerly the coach at Arkansas State, after the death of one of his two sons.

“On behalf of Utah State University, the athletics department and the football program, our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Blake Anderson and his family following the tragic death of his son,” a statement by University Vice President John Hartwell posted on Twitter read.

A tweet by Anderson on Monday night suggests something may have happened may have happened to Anderson’s family the day before Utah State’s statement.

“God is STILL god in the midst of our broken 💙(heart emoji),” Anderson tweeted around 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 28.

According to his biography on Utah State football’s media guide, Anderson has a daughter and two sons and two additional stepdaughters he adopted after his second marriage. Anderson has already suffered heartbreak in his immediate family when his first wife of 27 years, Wendy, passed away from cancer in 2019.

In his first year at Utah State, Anderson led the Aggies to one of their best seasons ever with an 11-3 record, a Mountain West Conference championship and a victory in the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl. The team finished the season ranked No. 24 in both the AP and Coaches Poll.

Prior to his move to Utah State, Anderson led the Arkansas State Red Wolves program from 2014 to 2020. He saw great success during his tenure in Jonesboro, taking the team to six bowl games, securing wins over UCF in the 2016 Cure Bowl and FIU in the 2018 Camellia Bowl, and a pair of Sunbelt crowns in 2015 and 2016.

In August of 2019, Anderson took a short leave at ASU after his wife lost her battle with breast cancer.
