Petersen needed to 3 more wins at this point and he went on to break the record. Unbelievable consistency from Petersen, slam dunk hire, if Bohn had half a brain he would do whatever it takes to get Petersen at USC, but Bohn will screw this hire up.
I didn't realize Washington had accomplished that under Petersen. Pretty impressive.
Petersen to USC could happen. I think his wife hates SoCal, but he could always dump her. Or, she could stay in Buttfuck, USA while he lives in SoCal and bangs USC co-eds. But seriously, folks, I'm guessing this time he might actually pull the trigger. However, the suits need to be on-board, and that's always tricky.
They moved to Buttfuck, USA? Well damn, I never thought they would leave Drycock, Idaho.
This after cleaning up fat lazy stupid Suck’s mess
Chris Petersen does not suffer fools, so I have a hard time believing he would willingly take a job and surround himself with what he despises most.
So you're saying he won't replace Chip.
Come on Pee-Wee, the "I know you are but what am I" thing is getting a little past your bed-time. Chip won't leave UCLA unless he quits, they don't have the means or the balls to fire him, and I think they believe he has the team in a really good spot, that would take a really nasty rebuild with someone else. If you look at recruiting, he has a formula for most of these players and I doubt it will work with another coach. Chris Petersen hates everything about football that USC is. Everything. Hates the big City, hates the Caruso types, the tomfoolery, the need to rub elbows with a bunch of stuffed shirts, hates the whole attitude and culture.
@DayStalker D(ip)S(hit), you are so lacking in self-awareness that didn't realize that your pathetic screed is consistent with my post that Petersen won't come to ugly. Your "I know wat you are...." crap is old, pathetic, and past your bed-time. Petersen hates everything about ucla football, a chronic loser. Piss off, chump.
@DayStalker It's way past Bob's bedtime.
The above suggests a reasonable approach to the next HC hire: find a consistently high-performing NFL defensive specialist (preferably HC) and write the check. Presumably, he would know and attract the kind of OC with a style that is a good fit with his defensive style.
the record is 71, as no one scored over 35. Petersen retired at the end of tye season with a record of 71 consecutive games.
Petersen isn’t retired ... he will be back
@SuckSuckisian obviously meant from UW.
but I agree, he’ll be back
@August West (and others)
Petersen will not coach at a major college again.
When he came on at UW, in not so many words, it was clear he would only coach for a max of 10 more years. He made it clear there were other things he wanted to do in his life.
"My whole plan is to get recharged, redirected and rested. I'm not ready to do nothing. I've just got to figure out where all this passion, energy and inspiration goes. I don't want it to be on a football field. I'm excited to see where this takes me," Petersen said.
Petersen was appointed as the Edward V. Fritzkey Endowed Chair of Leadership at the UW Foster School of Business for the 2020-2021 school year then joined FOX's team of the network's Big Noon Kickoff.
We saw it in 2019. The 2019 team just didn't seem as sharp and lost a couple of games to mediocre Stanford and a not a good Colorado, he normally wouldn't have. After another Pac-12 Champions in 2018, in an after the fact interview I listened to, he explained that he didn't appreciate the 2019 Rose Bowl game like he should have and that bothered him. That and transfer portal started his thinking and the NLI hastened his decision. The 'free agency' and now the NLI money is not something he is interested in being a part of.
Besides, I read posts earlier that when Donte Williams will most likely not be considered for the permanent head coach job, he would be 'guaranteed' a spot on the staff. Petersen would never take a position if the AD calls shots on his staff. Who knows how interested Petersen was when USC interviewed him after Kiffin, but demanding a couple of assistants be retained is when he got up, thanked USC for their time and left.
@mandb Donte isn’t guaranteed shet.
We’ll see, I think we see him again, not saying it’ll be SC, but he ain’t done.
Thats correct, Haden insisted CP keep EdO which was dumb, Ed was not working for anyone. But we are talking about a guy who hired Kiffin, Sark and Dough. Just a complete stupid shet.
USC will not quit Donte, there is not no how, not no way. Donte is the main ingredient in the secret USC formula that must be kept at all costs. This has been the case since Peet Carroll, the main recruiter MUST stay in order to hold the class together. I think that this strategy has ultimately been a huge curse, as there is more emphasis on star chasing than building a program, and what you get is a bunch of highly rated, undercoached players that don't win anything. So, the next coach will 100% have to keep Donte on staff as part of the hiring deal. Donte is not a good position coach as anyone who has watched a USC game can plainly see.
I hope they give Donte a 10 year deal similar to the one Jimbo Fisher signed.
