Report: Petersen leaving Boise State for Washington

Updated: December 6, 2013

( – The Washington Huskies have swiftly filled their head-
coaching vacancy.

ESPN is reporting that the university is expected to name Boise State’s Chris
Petersen to the position on Friday.

The Huskies were in need of a coach after Steve Sarkisian accepted the USC job
at the beginning of the week.

Petersen built a highly successful program at Boise State. During his eight
years at the helm, the Broncos won five conference titles, the first four
coming in the WAC before a move to the Mountain West resulted in a league
title last year. Petersen compiled a glittering 92-12 record and led Boise
State to a pair of BCS bowl wins.

The Broncos posted an 8-4 mark this season, including a loss to Washington.
