Here is the press release issued by the University of Sioux Falls.

As the 2022 season comes to a close, the University of Sioux Falls and Head Football Coach Jon Anderson are parting ways. The University announced Monday that Anderson is stepping down as coach of the Cougars, marking the end of his 6-year tenure as head coach of the program.
