BSU’s Petersen To Coach UW Huskies

Boise State’s Chris Petersen, pictured, has accepted an offer to become the Washington Huskies new head coach, the school announced this morning. Washington had offered to make Petersen, 49, one of the highest-paid coaches in the Pac-12, sources told The Seattle Times. He was scheduled to make $2.2 million at Boise State this season and has a $750,000 buyout in his contract. UW did not immediately release details of Petersen’s contract. UW said it waited to make the announcement of Petersen’s hiring until after the coach had met with his players at Boise State this morning. A press conference is scheduled for Monday to formally introduce Petersen/Adam Jude, Seattle Times. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Does this mean that the Boise State Broncos will continue coming back down to earth?
