Will Chris Petersen Remain At Boise State?

Boise State Head Coach Chris Petersen has his name thrown in the mix for what seems like every job opening in America. He doesn't comment on the rumors to the media, but is always a straight shooter when asked by the athletes (and their parents) in his recruiting class. So, what did he tell the parent of a current commit when asked directly about the current batch of rumors? Find out inside...

It's that time of the year again. Head Coach Chris Petersen has his name thrown in the mix for every job from coast to coast and everywhere in between. He doesn't comment on jobs to the media, but is always a straight shooter when asked by kids (and their parents) in his recruiting class. So, what did he tell the parent of a current commit when asked point blank about all the coaching rumors swirling from coast to coast?

"I'm committed to this program," he said. "I'm not going anywhere."

The concerned parent asked Coach Petersen if he had any interest in leaving Boise State and specifically mentioned what is speculated to be the most attractive of the current coaching vacancies for Coach Petersen, the current opening at Cal.

Like others, this parent saw the reports and heard the rumors indicating there might be interest from other schools given that he's one of the top coaches in all of college football. With that said, he eased the fears of this parent by saying that he has no intentions of leaving and is committed to the football program at Boise State.

That player, who still has several other offers, remains firmly committed to Boise State.
