Report: Chris Petersen to be named Washington coach
Washington is expected to name Chris Petersen head coach on Friday, according to sources.
Petersen reportedly met with Huskies officials Thursday night in Boise and reportedly inked a deal to become one of the highest-paid coaches in the Pac-12.
Though his name has been linked to several head-coaching jobs in recent years, Petersen turned them all down. But he had finally decided it was time for a new challenge and was actively pursuing new jobs.
Petersen met with athletic director Pat Haden in Boise on Sunday morning. Haden decided on Washington’s Steve Sarkisian, setting in motion Petersen’s move to Seattle.
According to an ESPN report, Petersen’s Thursday night meeting with Washington AD Scott Woodward and senior associate athletic director Jennifer Cohen was “not an interview.
“Representatives from both sides spent all day Thursday working out the agreement,” the source said.
Petersen was 92-12 with five conference titles and two BCS games during eight seasons at Boise State. The Broncos slipped to an 8-4 mark this season, including a loss to Washington.
Washington was previously to interview Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier on Thursday.
