Any chance he goes to USC? That would be awesome.
I did not see that coming.
The press release says he’s taking a ‘leadership role’ within UW athletics
I know they underachieved this year, but this is pretty surprising to me.
Feels like he could head to SC. But things seem pretty unclear regarding Clueless Clay’s status. He’s coming off a winning season with a top 25 ranking. Stranger things have happened.
I think that “role” might not have a lot of staying power.
Source? I can’t find anything on it.
Why would that be awesome? I want them to get a dud, not a proven winner like Peterson.
This is the most shocking coaching development in college football in a long time. Wow.
He’ll be a Trojan by the end of the week.
Peterson could build another dynasty at SC … gawd I hope he doesn’t go there. The Dawg’s season wasn’t that bad jeez … one yr off the P12 championship. This reeks of something else
Yeah. It reeks of “he’s gonna take the USC job.”
Everything is coming up Utah! (Unless he goes to USC, like a dick.)
USC is an interesting job. As a coach like Peterson you come into an immediate talent pool. As in they could potentially be CFP bound in his first year there. However, anything less than that and the USC fanbase is not going to be happy with you.
Yes. Quite possibly the most entitled fan base in CFB.
Them and Bama lol
Hopefully he’ll do as well as the last two Washington coaches to move to socal.
They’re probably on par with each other. Both very impressed with their greatness. I mentioned to one of my USC alum friends recently that at least some SC fans were pompous. He disagreed and claimed none of them were. This comes from a very educated and intelligent person.
What is also really interesting is that the new HC is not interim. There’s a lot more to this story that we’re not seeing.
Not to sidebar this, but did we ever get the full details about Gary Anderson stepping down at Wiscy? Kinda feels like that.
