Chris Petersen to step down as Huskies head coach

Chris Petersen got the win over BYU Saturday.

The 22nd-ranked Washington Huskies played the BYU Cougars in NCAA Football Saturday

It should be downright alarming for college football at large.

This is just the latest in a multitude of coaching moves so far. His career winning percentage of.793 ranks second among active coaches with at least five years of FBS experience. He was the fifth-fastest coach to reach 100 wins. Petersen will coach the Huskies in the bowl game, his final game in charge of the program he helped grow back into national prominence during his tenure. Heck, he very well could have taken the USC job that ultimately went to Steve Sarkisian.

Head Coach Chris Petersen of the Washington Huskies reacts against the Utah Utes in the first quarter during their game at Husky Stadium on November 02, 2019 in Seattle, Washington.

"Wow", Whittingham said. "All I got for that is wow".

This is a guy who's among the 10 most respected coaches in the sport saying he'd rather do something else. "He overachieved as a player (at EWU) and he's done the same thing as a coach". He did it successfully. While the Huskies fell short that day, it was a major accomplishment for a program that less than a decade earlier had gone through an 0-12 season. I've been a journalist for 13 years, mainly covering sports in the state of Kansas, where I am from. George Karl was sacked as Sonics coach in 1998 after the team made seven straight playoff appearances, but the coach's relationship with the president and general manager was a clear rift.

In its statement , NASA said: "Shanmuga Subramanian contacted the LRO project with positive identification of debris". On September 10, ISRO had announced that it had located the Lander but no communication has been estabished yet.

"Chris has been transformational for not exclusively our soccer program, however our complete athletic division", athletic director Jen Cohen mentioned.

Petersen wasn't on the outs here.

Petersen has coached the Huskies for six seasons, leading the program to Pac-12 championships in 2016 and 2018, the 2016 College Football Playoffs and three consecutive New Year's Six bowl games. He was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2016 and has served as the Huskies' lone defensive coordinator in the last two seasons. The fact that Lake stuck around is because he knew this was a distinct possibility, and in that way, the Huskies are very fortunate. "I'll be a Husky for life, but now is the right time for me to step away from my head coaching duties, and recharge". I thought the coach who was known for his trick plays at Boise State became more pedestrian here with the Huskies. Boise State coach Bryan Harsin also was on Petersen's Boise State staff. "This wouldn't be possible without the mentorship of Coach Petersen and I would like to thank him for everything he has done for me, as well as Jen Cohen for entrusting me with this opportunity".

What he brings to the head coaching position is enthusiasm and energy - and this may be exactly what is needed right now to push Washington to the next level.
