After years of turning down job offerings, Boise State’s Chris Petersen appears to finally be leaving the Broncos. Petersen is expected to be named the new Washington Huskies head coach on Friday, according to a report from ESPN’s Joe Schad.

Petersen and Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier had emerged as the top two targets over the last couple of days.

Washington is reportedly set to make Petersen one of the highest-paid coaches in the Pac-12.

The 49-year-old coach took over Boise State’s head coaching position in 2006, amassing a 92-12 record while at the helm of the Broncos. He took the program to a bowl game in each of his eight seasons, including winning two BCS bowls.

According to Schad, Petersen is looking for a new challenge. The Washington job opening and family timing are the perfect combination to make the move.
