Washington Hires Boise State Football Coach Chris Petersen

Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- The University of Washington hired Boise State coach Chris Petersen to replace Steve Sarkisian, who left the Huskies four days ago to take over the University of Southern California football program.

Petersen, 49, had a 92-12 record over eight seasons at Boise State, where he led the Broncos to two victories in Bowl Championship Series games and twice received the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award as college football’s national coach of the year.

“Coach Petersen’s success and record are extraordinary, but even more impressive is the man himself,” Washington Athletic Director Scott Woodward said in a statement. “His integrity, work ethic and character make him an outstanding fit and leader of our student-athletes.”

Petersen led Boise State to 10 or more wins in seven of his eight seasons and had 12 or more each year from 2008-11.

Sarkisian on Dec. 2 joined USC as the permanent successor to Lane Kiffin after compiling a 34-29 record over five seasons at Washington. Ed Orgeron had been the interim coach at USC since September.
