Washington’s coaching vacancy might be short-lived. Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reports that Boise State head coach Chris Petersen is scheduled to interview with the Huskies on Friday.

Earlier this week, Petersen was rumored to be among the candidates for the USC coaching job, but he reportedly withdrew his name from consideration. The Trojans tabbed ex-Washington coach Steve Sarkisian on Monday.

Petersen has spent the last 12 years at Boise State, where he served five seasons as offensive coordinator before taking over as head coach in 2006. He is 92-12 as the Broncos’ head coach.

No way he is leaving, he is just using this to get another raise, how long until Boise State tells him to just leave, that they are sick of his act

Can anyone say "home run"?  Count me as among the Husky alumni who consider Sarkesian's departure as a blessing and a chance to upgrade the program.  Under Sarkesian the Huskies were always undisciplined with a lot of turnovers and this year they "led" all of college football in penalties.  Petersen has a proven record of fielding a disciplined team that minimizes mistakes.  Here's crossing my fingers for a Petersen hire!

@Oldtimeduffer I totally agree! I just hope he isn't using this to get a raise. With Mora out of the picture, Peterson is definitely my first choice. While I am disappointed that Sarkisian left, I'm more excited about the chance to upgrade.
