Twitter blowing up about the Boise coach accepting the Arkie job. Count me among those surprised he wouldn't stay out west like at Cal.

Boise has lost some cachet this year with its struggles. The uncertain conference situation certainly doesn't help and the Waltons and Jerrah can certainly afford to relocate any medical specialists Petersen's kids need. Still, it doesn't sound likely.

Hmm...that would be an interesting pick for Arky. More interesting was the poster who said Peterson would be UT's next coach. Now that would be something.
What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...

I sure hope he doesn't go to either of those places (Arky or t.u.). He seems too nice of a guy for those hell holes.

That would be a bad thing for the B12. He's a great coach.

Arkansas would make the most sense... smaller backwoods school, to larger backwoods school and double the income in the premiere conference in NCAA.

Cheers !

A+ hire for them if so. Good for Peterson too, Boise is nice but he deserves more as a coach. It'll be awesome to see what he can do with some top-flight recruits. I feel like he's done all he can out at BSU.

Even better is that he didn't get a job in Austin or Lubbock.


If UT could somehow get Chris Peterson to be their head coach, I have no doubts that they'd win 10+ per year as long as he is there.

If Petersen info true, this would match the offensive minded coach info I was given previously. Will see.

Just told Arkansas recruits have been told Chris Petersen (BSU) will be next #Razorback head coach. #WPS

This wouldn't be the first time that Arkansas fans/reporters have jumped the gun before anything is confirmed. Remember a week ago some Arky reporter tweeting something along the lines of "everything I'm hearing is that Gary Patterson will be the next coach of Arkansas". Yeah...no.

That being said, if true that is a slam dunk hire for them. He's a great coach and classy guy. I would actually worry a little about recruiting against him. Boise always tried to recruit out of DFW, and he will likely do so even more if he is indeed their next coach.

Tennessee is a better job than Arkansas IMO and I bet TN would pay him more. I thought Petersen had a kid with a rare disease that could only be treated at a certain few medical centers. Really doubt Arky has one of them.

I'm skeptical.

When you hire a new coach the recruits are always told first....

UT (Tennessee) has one of the best medical centers in the country.

Bizarre if true. Petersen has turned down better jobs than Arkansas. He has a great gig at Boise, I'm skeptical that he'd leave it for the likes of Arkansas.
