Former Boise State football coach Chris Petersen spoke for the first time Monday about his decision to leave Boise for the University of Washington.
The crowd chanted Petersen’s name as a press conference got underway in Seattle. Petersen began by thanking Boise State, the Broncos, fans and everyone who’s helped him reach this point.
“People keep asking me ‘Why now? You’ve been in Boise for so long.’ Two things keep coming to mind: timing and fit,” Petersen explained.
