Chris Petersen is headed to Washington after finally being persuaded to leave Boise State. Petersen agreed to become the Huskies' new football coach on Friday, leaving behind an unprecedented run of success with the Broncos. The Huskies made the announcement Friday morning after Petersen reportedly met with Washington athletic director Scott Woodward on Thursday night in Boise. Petersen met with his Boise State players Friday morning before the announcement was made.
Jameis Winston quickly emerged as one of college football's biggest stars because of his brilliant play, while also charming Florida State fans with his smile and natural charisma. He was accused of rape by a female Florida State student. And according to coach Jimbo Fisher, he wasn't showing it privately either. ''He's been the same guy, and like I said, he believed in the process, and he believed in himself, and he's been the same guy,'' Fisher said Friday at a news conference at Bank of America Stadium for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game against Duke, about 24 hours after prosecutors in Florida announced Winston would not be charged.
