Boise State University Head Coach Chris Petersen has accepted the head coaching job at the University of Washington according to UW officials. Speculation had run rampant on Thursday when Petersen's name was announced as a contender for the post left vacant by former head coach Steve Sarkisian, who recently accepted a position at the University of Southern California. Tust reports that Washington Athletic Director Scott Woodward flew to Boise on Friday and held a 90 minute meeting with Petersen.
Information from ESPN suggests Petersen was offered the job at that meeting, and has accepted.
