sources. After turning down offers for years, Petersen obviously felt like the time to make a career move was now as he takes over the vacancy left by Steve Sarkisian.
Petersen went 92-12 for a winning percentage of near 90% during his eight years as Boise State's head coach. During that span, Boise State won five conference titles and two BCS games.
It is clear that this was a mega hire for Washington as they get a coach that many teams desired. With this move, Petersen is expected to be one of the Pac-12's highest paid coaches.
