Idaho Reporter Twitter: (State Board of Education) unanimously approves (8-0) new contract for BSU Head Football Coach Chris Petersen. Post by Chadd Cripe/Statesman here.
BroncosoverVandalsofcourse: I just want Vandal fans to know they are right, Boise is a different world than the sadder parts of Idaho, however it’s ignorant to think that 18 year old football fans wouldn’t be immature enough to choose a school based on the football team. Who knows how often this happens now that there is constant national exposure, a full decade of dominance, and the unique blue field on which to watch the beatdowns. I hope coach pete is the new face of idaho, as opposed to the bathroom toe-tapper, or to be fair, the bsu cheerleaders exposed to the world at the last fiesta bowl.
Question: If Chris Petersen is worth $1.2M next year to the Boise State Broncos, what is UIdaho’s coach Robb Akey worth? (I know Akey has a new contract but I couldn’t find the new numbers. His old contract of $1.2M over 5 years was the highest in UIdaho history when awarded in 2007.)
