Idaho Potato Bowl 2012: Mike Sanford will coach for Utah State Saturday

USA TODAY Sports

Before going to Indiana State as their new head coach, Utah State assistant head coach Mike Sanford will remain with the Aggies through their bowl game on Saturday against Toledo.

Utah State assistant coach Mike Sanford has been named the new head coach at Indiana State, but will be on the sideline for the Aggies when they face the Toledo Rockets in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl on Saturday night, according to footballscoop.com. Sanford is taking over for Trent Miles, who left Indiana State to take the head coaching job at Georgia State.

Sanford was the head coach at UNLV from 2005-2009, compiling a record of 16-43 along the way. At Utah State this past season, he coached the running backs and tight ends, and also served as the assistant head coach. The Aggies won the WAC this year with a 10-2 record. Sanford has also coached at Louisville, Notre Dame, Army, Purdue, Stanford, Utah, USC, and with the San Diego Chargers.

The Sycamores went 7-4 this season under Miles, continuing a rapid turnaround after years of dismal results in Terre Haute.
