When Chris Petersen was hired after the 2013 season, no one knew for sure how long it might take to return the Husky program to the top levels of the college football world. It turns out, it took about three years.

In 2016, the Huskies had their best season since 2000 and one of their best ever, winning the Pac-12 Championship, earning a spot in the College Football Playoff and finishing ranked No. 4 in the final polls. They did it with high-achieving, young players across the starting lineup while also succeeding in the classroom at an unprecedented and sustained rate.

That success continued in 2017, as the UW posted back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since 1990-91 and earned a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl game, finishing the season 10-3 overall and 7-2 in Pac-12 play. In the meantime, the Huskies posted a team GPA of 3.16, shattering the program’s record, set the previous fall.

Petersen, the only two-time winner of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award (2006 and 2009), compiled an exceptional 92-12 record in his eight seasons as Boise State head coach (2006-2013), including two unbeaten seasons (13-0 in 2006 and 14-0 in 2009) and two BCS bowl berths. He won five conference titles and posted a 57-6 record in conference play (WAC from 2006-10 and Mountain West from 2011-13).

Petersen and his wife, Barbara, are parents of two sons, Jack and Sam.
