He spoke to a large audience Tuesday afternoon, which included about 35 football players.
Anderson said he's working at assembling a coaching staff, and he'll immediately start recruiting. He wants to start in the state and branch out regionally.
"I told the guys, offensively, my expectation would be to hire a great offensive coordinator and let him do his thing," Anderson said. "I do believe in running the football and I do believe in the ability to change tempo as far as no-huddle, but we won't pigeonhole ourselves right now into a specific scheme.
"Defensively, I can speak a little bit further on that because of my background and comfort level. I love the versatility of what we're going to do on defense. We're going to be multiple.
"On both sides of the football we're going to work really hard to develop a physical nature."
Sioux Falls went 9-2 in 2012. In his first season as defensive coordinator in 2010, Anderson's unit led the nation in scoring defense (8.5 points per game), total defense (206.1 yards per game) and pass defense (113 yards per game).
West Virginia State was last in the conference in scoring defense (42.4 points per game) and next to last in total defense (436.7 yards per game) this past season.
"I take it very seriously moving our family to where we're at all the way here," Anderson said. "I wouldn't do that, I wouldn't bring the staff that we're working to bring here, unless I fully believed that success was right around the corner."
